Established in 1923, we have 195 member countries, and we enable cross-border police cooperation and support and assist all organizations, authorities, and services to prevent or combat international crime. To do this, we enable them to share and access data on crimes and criminals, and we offer a range of technical and operational support. We connect all our countries via a communications system called I-24/7. Countries use this secure network to contact each other, and the General Secretariat. It also allows them to access our databases and services in real-time, from both central and remote locations.

We also coordinate networks of police and experts in different crime areas, who come together through working groups and at conferences to share experiences and ideas.
