Interpol Law and Legal Definition
Interpol is the world’s largest international police organization that facilitates cross-border police co-operation, and supports and assists all organizations, authorities, and services whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime. The agency permits collaboration among intelligence agencies around the world. The Interpol tries for international police co-operation even where diplomatic relations do not exist between particular countries. The organization helps to prevent people from committing crimes in one country and using international borders as a barrier to prevent prosecution. It also maintains and updates databases that can be accessed and used by international policing authorities.
