Interpol’s Evolving Approach to Innovation and Research-Based Policing
This paper aims to provide a broad overview of INTERPOL’s activities in the realms of innovation and research, and provides detailed descriptions of the Organisation’s efforts to adapt its activities and strategic priorities to a constantly changing global environment. After a brief discussion introducing INTERPOL and its activities, the article is broken down into four main themes: INTERPOL’s new emphasis on ‘future-oriented’ thinking, its promotion of innovation in police training, research initiatives in which INTERPOL is engaged and innovative tools and technical solutions under development by INTERPOL to support its member countries. The activities undertaken by INTERPOL in these areas aim to guide the Organisation and reinforce its role in enhancing global security against crime threats of the 21st century.
