This is general information that would you might want to read before going on. <a href="http://www.czerka.com">"global domination"</a>

Interpol is an official international organization. They aid other organizations and agencies that have the same objective that they have, which is pursuing criminals where ever the may be. Interpol connects all the police agencies in the world by a network of recorded information for at least half a century. Interpol is located in Lyons, France and is VERY secure for example, the barrier wall was built around the HQ to a distance just incase anyone decided to drive a car bomb into the HQ. The President of Interpol at the moment is Jackie Selebi (South Africa), who is head of the General Assembly (which you can see in the link of Structure to the left). The Secretary General at the moment is Ronald K. Noble who is head of the General Secretariat (which you can also see in the link of Structure to the left). Interpol usually does not contact countries directly; instead they have a NCB (National Central bureau) that makes contact between Interpol and that country's liaison officer (representative).

What types of crime does Interpol specialize in enforcing?- Interpol enforces weapon smuggling, illicit drug trafficking, illegal immigration, trafficking stolen motor vehicles, fraud, child pornography, sex trafficking and any other Transnational crimes.

 

How does Interpol send their notices? - Interpol sends their notices by use of the I-24/7 system and the use of Notices. The notices are organized by color which determines their type of information requesting or sending (you can see them in the Notices section on the link bar). All notices are sent in 4 main languages which are English, Spanish, French and Arabic (recently added), and contain information about suspects (these are noted in the Identification link on the bar).

What does Interpol do with the information they receive? - Interpol usually files them by type of crime and assesses them. Interpol has specialized groups called Intelligence groups that predict patterns in international crime like type of vehicle preferred, signs, weapons used (if used). These Intel groups send weekly reports on the latest info in crime pattern.

 

Does Interpol work with governmental law enforcement agencies like the FBI? - Yes, Interpol dose have law enforcement agencies represented at the national NBC (USNBC for me).

 

Can I ever file a case to Interpol? - No, you canít file a case directly to Interpol but you can contact your local NCB and file a case with them, and remember that Interpol usually works with transnational crimes, murder, kidnapping or missing persons which you would suspect were in another county than your own.

 

If a criminal is caught in one country, is he arrested in the county he was caught in or does he go back to the country the crime was committed in? - The country hat has charges against a criminal will prosecute that person to their law. Interpol cannot arrest anyone, the country that wants that person can. Interpol can take that arrest warrant and take it to any country need to. The country where the person was caught will detain that person and ship them back to the country where they committed the crime in, with an arrest warrant from the county receiving the criminal. This is known as the process of extradition. This only works if the two countries have a treaty together saying that they can extradite a person to each other.

 

Can the public view the criminal database as well? - The public cannot view all the notices, but the can view some Red notices at the Interpol website under Wanted.

 

Can I be an Interpol officer? - yes, but there are some requirements like having a police background, being bi-lingual in any of Interpol's 4 base languages, but there rest you will find here in Recruitment.
