Today, Interpol is a low profile, high impact organization. The one hundred and eighty-one member countries assist each other voluntarily in international investigations. Run by experienced law enforcement officers from around the world, the men and women of Interpol often work day-to-day in their own country's police forces. When the need arises, they act on behalf of Interpol and dedicate their efforts to international cooperation in law enforcement. When criminals cross borders, Interpol is there.
