Interpol facilitates cross-border police co-operation, and supports and assists all organisations, authorities and services whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime. Read more on Interpol's website.

The AFP is the Interpol National Central Bureau (NCB) for Australia. AOCC operates the NCB on behalf of the AFP.

Ask the AFP to contact Interpol for:

  • Transactional enquiries that do not require specific police-to-police engagement such as:
    • criminal history checks
    • background enquiries
    • fingerprint comparisons
    • compassionate welfare notifications
  • Countries where the AFP does not have a permanent presence.
