Committee's outline and faculties
The International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), is an inter-governmental association founded in 1923. This organism was created with the strategic objective of preventing and fighting extremists acts, organized crime, money laundering, and international security matters. By the same token, in 1997 a Cooperation Agreement between the INTERPOL and the United Nations (UN) was formalized, with the purpose of ensuring human rights. INTERPOL's headquarters are in France, where the General Secretariat coordinates activities to fight different crimes. However, INTERPOL has 194 active member countries and each nation hosts a National Central Bureau (NCB) acting as a link between the global network.
The INTERPOL aims to facilitate and encourage police communication to ensure international security. In this regard, INTERPOL officials work in each specialized criminal area and carry out a variety of different activities together with member countries. The INTERPOL activities include:
Manages access to databases through the secure global police communications system, which contains information and makes the member countries link.
Provides a range of services to member countries, such as field operations, staff training, and networking.
INTERPOL's Integrated Border Management Task Force (IBMTF) manages operations at air, land and sea border points during which it provides access to databases.
