Focus on cooperation

Crime is becoming increasingly global and digital: ATM thieves, cyber criminals, drug, human and arms traffickers do not stop at cantonal or national borders. That is why information exchange and cooperation between national and international law enforcement services are indispensable for fighting crime and increasing se-curity. To enhance cooperation, fedpol is bringing police authorities together for INTERPOL’s 100th anniversary.

Exchange of information

Crime is a reflection of society. It is digital, mobile, connected. Terrorists and criminals do not act locally. They do not stop at borders, whether cantonal or national. In order to strengthen security, a rapid and most comprehensive exchange of information between police forces is indispensable.
