As a reminder, INTERPOL is the world’s largest international police organization, with 194 member countries. Its purpose is to enable police around the world to work together to make the world safer.

The INTERPOL General Assembly brings together delegates appointed by the governments of the member countries of the organization. It is the highest governing body of the Organization. It is held once a year and makes all important decisions regarding policy, resources for international cooperation, working methods, finances, and Interpol activities. As part of its statutory activities, it elects the members of the Executive Committee of the Organization, including the President and the Secretary General.

The Principality of Monaco joined INTERPOL in 1956. Its participation in INTERPOL’s activities enabled the Public Security Department to establish close links with the police of the member countries, this international cooperation being particularly valuable in the framework and development of the prevention policy put in place in Monaco.
