At the root of this connection is a tight, often unbreakable bond which promotes devotion and loyalty.
It’s a global business
With revenues estimated in the billons, their criminal enterprises closely resemble those of legitimate international businesses. They have operating models, long-term strategies, hierarchies, and even strategic alliances, all serving the same purpose: to generate the most profits with the least amount of risk.
What we do
Our Organized Crime unit works hand in hand with all of INTERPOL’s police services to identify major figures involved in transnational crime, the associated criminal networks and their activities.
The ultimate objective is to stop the organizations themselves from operating.
We conduct criminal analysis based on intelligence provided by our member countries and partners, such as biometrics, images and known associations. This allows us to provide a global picture and link organizers, financers, recruiters, distributors and corrupt officials, for example.
