International Criminal Police Organization
About this Committee
The UN plays a pivotal role in addressing global challenges and conflicts through diplomacy, peacekeeping missions, and development initiatives. INTERPOL, short for the International Criminal Police Organization, is an intergovernmental organization founded in 1923. Its primary mission is to facilitate international police cooperation and combat transnational crime. Their current strategic goals for 2022-2025 are focused on increasing trusted information for action and readiness, enriching policing through partnerships, advancing and innovating policy, and enhancing organizational performance and delivery. INTERPOL provides a platform for law enforcement agencies from around the world to collaborate, share information, and coordinate efforts to combat various forms of criminal activity, such as terrorism, organized crime, crimes against humanity, drug trafficking, cybercrime, and human trafficking. INTERPOL also issues notices for wanted persons and supports member countries in criminal investigations and operations.
