The world’s policeman: what Interpol is and how it works
22 Nov 2018

AP – Interpol has a new president after an unusually contentious vote. Here’s a look at how the international police agency works:


Interpol is an international body that connects police from 194 countries. A country hunting a terrorist, drug trafficker or other criminal outside its borders can use Interpol’s “red notice” and other systems to alert police in other countries and seek arrests.

Interpol also coordinates cross-border police operations, for example to break up human trafficking networks or pedophile online pornography rings. It’s funded by member governments.
