By: Alivia Lynch, Alexia Mckindsey, Bianca Pace and Sarah Periera
September 7, 1923
How is Interpol viewed?
Each country has their own bureau, a National Central Bureau (NCB), which allows each country to be connected in order to work together.
The Headquarters is located in Lyon, France.
Most prominent countries
The United States
INTERPOL also allows the states to go beyond national borders, by supporting other INTERPOL member countries who seek assistance in criminal investigations.
In 2009, Obama passed a law that gives INTERPOL the same privileges and immunity as other international organizations operating within the States have.
This gives INTERPOL more power within the USA, because there are less restrictions limiting them from law enforcement.
Although Interpol is known for being a fairly neutral organization, it has been involved in some controversies. Some have criticized the agency for its role in arrests that critics contend were politically motivated.
In 2013, Interpol was criticized over some of its multi-million dollar deals such as with FIFA, Philip Morris, and the pharmaceutical industry. The criticism was mainly about the lack of transparency and potential conflicts of interest.
The idea of Interpol was born in 1914 at the International Criminal Police Congress in Monaco
The meeting brought police officers and judicial representatives from 24 countries around the world, to find ways to flight and solve crime.
INTERPOL flourished until 1938, when Nazi Germany annexed Austria; it's records were subsequently relocated to Berlin. The outbreak of World War II ended INTERPOL's
After the war INTERPOL accepted an offer from the French government of a headquarters in Paris together with a staff for the General Secretariat consisting of French police officials. INTERPOL was revived, though the loss or destruction of all its prewar records required that it be completely reorganized.
Interpol is the common name for the organization.
It is the world's largest police organization with 190 member countries.
Its primary role is to assist law enforcement agencies around the world in combating all forms of transnational crime and terrorism.
The idea of Interpol was created in 1914 at the first International Criminal Police Congress, held in Monaco.
This meeting brought together police officers and judici representatives from 24 countries cooperating together in order to find ways to solve crimes, specifically arrest and extradition procedures, identification techniques and the idea of centralized criminal records.
Power of State
An international criminal "Wanted list" is created with the help of each member country.
The list requests international attention
Interpol helps to restrict and limit international crime world wide, in fact in 2001 1 400 "red notice" criminals were arrested by Interpol.
