The INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) will be a cutting-edge research and development facility for the identification of crimes and criminals, innovative training, operational support and partnerships.
Based in a state-of-the-art building in Singapore, the IGCI will complement the General Secretariat when it opens in April 2015.
The complex will go beyond a traditional reactive law enforcement model, providing proactive research into new areas and the latest training techniques. The IGCI will feature three main components:
Digital security – addressing issues such as Internet security governance, boosting cybersecurity and countering cybercrime;
Capacity building and training – research into training and methodology and the transfer of this research into police activities on the ground;
Operational and investigative support – identifying and addressing emerging crime threats, disaster victim identification and incident response and major events support.
