Resolution on law-enforcement passed during 87th INTERPOL

November 24, 2018 6:18 pm

The 87th International Criminal Police Organization’s general assembly has discussed and passed resolutions on innovation in law-enforcement.

Concluding the meeting, other areas of discussions involved challenges faced from cyber-crime, terrorism and counter-terrorism, sharing of criminal data and human trafficking.

The evolution of technology was also one of the key issues of discussion.

Fiji’s Delegation to the general assembly was led by Police Commissioner, Brigadier General, Sitiveni Qiliho.

This year’s Assembly voted in favor of Kiribati and Vanuatu as INTERPOL’s new member countries taking the policing body total to 194.

In their respective national acceptance speeches, Kiribati and Vanuatu’s head of delegations commended the Fiji Police Force for its assistance over the years.

The two pacific nations were especially grateful for the provision of capacity building courses, training and recruitment exercises and other policing cooperation.

Kiribati and Vanuatu will each now establish their National Central Bureau where they can share and receive vital policing information from around the world across a range of crime areas and criminal activities.

The next INTERPOL general assembly will be held in Chile.
