FBI, Interpol Working More Closely Against Terrorism and Cybercrime

The announcement came Sept. 23 after a high-level meeting between FBI Director James Comey and Interpol Secretary General Jürgen Stock in Lyon, France.

Leaders of Interpol and the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced a plan to enhance cooperation between the law enforcement organizations in order to fight terrorism and cybercrime. The announcement came Sept. 23 after a high-level meeting between FBI Director James Comey and Interpol Secretary General Jürgen Stock in Lyon, France.

UN Security Council Resolution 2178 identifies Interpol as the global law enforcement information sharing’ platform against foreign fighters, and as a result, more than 50 countries including the United States have provided information to Interpol about some 5,000 suspected and confirmed fighters linked to Syria and Iraq.

"International partnerships remain critical as we work to keep our nations safe from crime," said Comey. "Recent events underscore the pervasive nature of international terrorism and the increased need to share information. Interpol plays a crucial role by ensuring law enforcement agencies have access to real-time intelligence, which assists in identifying and countering common threats in order to protect those we serve."

"As we face an ever-increasing range and scope of crime and terror threats, international cooperation between law enforcement agencies has never been so important," Stock said. "Interpol plays a unique role in assisting police in each of our 190 member countries to identify and share intelligence leads, bridge information gaps, and disrupt the organized networks behind a range of crimes which are often interlinked. However, this is not possible without the support and input from agencies such as the FBI, and I look forward to our working even more closely in the future to the benefit of the global law enforcement community and citizens worldwide."
