About Me


These Aims are Aims that I thought would show the real idea of Interpol's mentality. They are from Interpol's constitution.

Article 2 states Interpol's constitution states their Aims:

1.To ensure and promote the widest possible mutual assistance between all criminal police authorities within the limits of the laws existing in the different countries and in the spirit of the 'Universal Declaration of Human Rights';


2.To establish and develop all institutions likely to contribute effectively to the prevention and suppression of ordinary law crimes.


Article 3 states Interpol's involvement in criminal cases:

It is strictly forbidden for the Organization to undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.

This is Interpol's mission statement :

To be the world’s pre-eminent police organization in support of all organizations, authorities and services whose mission is preventing, detecting, and suppressing crime.

Interpol will achieve this by:

  • Providing both a global perspective and a regional focus;
  • Exchanging information that is timely, accurate, relevant and complete;
  • Facilitating international co-operation;
  • Co-coordinating joint operational activities of its member countries;
  • Making available know- how, expertise and good practice

Interpol will act on the basis of the articulated demands and expectations of these organizations, authorities and services, while remaining alert to developments so as to be able to anticipate future requirements.
