Organised crime is a growing threat across our increasingly inter-connected world, causing serious harm to governments, industry, communities, and individuals. Recent crises in Ecuador and Haiti highlight the grip organised crime can have, subverting institutions and the rule of law.

There has never been a more pressing need for global law enforcement to take a more coordinated and comprehensive approach to tackle such threats. INTERPOL is the only global law enforcement agency connecting 196 countries and devoted to combating such global security challenges, through measures such as the dismantling of criminal and terrorist networks, thwarting online child sexual abuse and disrupting drugs and arms smuggling.

In the year that INTERPOL elects its new Secretary-General, Stephen Kavanagh will reflect on the most pressing crime threats from a global perspective, and how the world can come together in a community built on trust, resilience and strategic readiness to protect the public.
