Interpol was set up for globally enhancing and facilitating cross-border criminal police co-operation.

Today, it is the second biggest international organization after the United Nations, with 181 member countries spread over five continents.

As technological developments shrink the world into a global village and know no national boundaries, so criminals are fast to exploit technology. With the escalation of serious transnational crime, the need for a global police co-operation response has never been more acute.
