The International Criminal Police Organisation (ICPO) is also known as Interpol. Its role is to ensure and promote the widest possible mutual assistance between all criminal police authorities within the limits of the laws of the countries, and in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Additionally, its purpose is to establish and develop all institutions likely to contribute effectively to the prevention and detection of ordinary law crimes. The organisation is strictly forbidden to undertake any intervention or activities of a political, military, religious or racial character.
The Australian Interpol also known as the National Central Bureau (NCB) receives approximately 30,000 messages per year.
