On this section of the Security Website we are going to inform you of what the International Police Organization and departments are doing to with regards to World Security and Counter Terrorism Information.

In this ever changing socio-political environment, and since the shift from the Cold War era to the global threat of terrorism, the team at the Security Website will let you know what information is of use to you, along with other useful information regarding intelligence policies and intelligence resilience and oversight.

We have compiled a list of reports by certain government bodies that explain and highlight what they do and what they have done in the past. A list of government bodies attributed to the oversight of intelligence agencies are listed below.

Please be aware that all information on this section of the Security Website is collated from the Interpol Portal

INTERNATIONAL POLICE ORGANIZATION



 

INTERPOL FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISM


Terrorism poses a grave threat to individuals’ lives and national security around the world. INTERPOL has therefore made available various resources to support member countries in their efforts to protect their citizens from terrorism, including bio-terrorism; firearms and explosives; attacks against civil aviation; maritime piracy; and weapons of mass destruction.

INTERPOL collects, stores, analyses and exchanges information about suspected individuals and groups and their activities. The organization also co-ordinates the circulation of alerts and warnings on terrorists, dangerous criminals and weapons threats to police in member countries. A chief initiative in this area is the Fusion Task Force, which was created in the aftermath of the 11 September attacks in the United States.

In order to help member countries report terrorist activity, INTERPOL has issued practical guidelines on the type of information required. Member countries are also encouraged to report on other crimes which may be linked to terrorism, such as suspicious financial transactions, weapons trafficking, money laundering, falsified travel and identity documents, and seizures of nuclear, chemical and biological materials.

The growing possibility of terrorists launching attacks with biological or chemical weapons is a particularly urgent concern. A dedicated bio-terrorism unit at the General Secretariat works to implement various projects with the close co-operation of INTERPOL National Central Bureaus and Regional Offices.

Fusion Task Force

Fusion Task - what and why?

As the planning for terrorist attacks often spans countries and regions, fighting terrorism requires the same level of effort and cooperation among nations. Spearheading INTERPOL's anti-terrorism efforts is the Fusion Task Force (FTF), created in September 2002 in the wake of the alarming rise in the scale and sophistication of international terrorist attacks.

FTF's primary objectives are to:

  • Identify active terrorist groups and their membership
  • Solicit, collect and share information and intelligence
  • Provide analytical support
  • Enhance the capacity of member countries to address the threats of terrorism and organised crime.

As terrorist organisations' far-reaching activities are inextricably linked, the task force investigates not only attacks, but also organizational hierarchies, training, financing, methods, and motives.

INTERPOL has identified public safety and terrorism as a priority crime area, and countries can benefit from INTERPOL's unique position in the international law enforcement community in the fight against terrorism. The INTERPOL officials involved with the FTF are all terrorism specialists seconded from their home countries.

Regional & global efforts

Six regional task forces have been created in regions considered to be particularly susceptible to terrorist activity: Project Pacific (Southeast Asia), Project Kalkan (Central & South Asian Countries), Project Amazon (South America), Project Baobab (Africa), Project NEXUS (Europe) and Project Middle East. An immediate goal is to increase the number of officers from the above regions to develop region-specific initiatives and enhance the effectiveness of the task force in these areas. In January 2008, 119 member states were contributing to terrorism related matters.

Fusion Task Force in action

INTERPOL works closely with organizations such as the United Nations Al Qaeda and Taliban monitoring teams and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia to maintain its lists of suspected terrorists. FTF also maintains a secure website for member countries which includes all information on the Fusion Task Working Group Meetings, including presentations and analytical reports; photo boards of suspected terrorists; notices and diffusion lists. In January 2008, 545 users were accessing the FTF restricted web site.

Returns on investment

FTF efforts have already reaped substantial returns: as in January 2008, there were 8 479 persons suspected in database linked to terrorist activities who have no ASF restriction; the FTF team has built a contact network of nearly 200 contact officers in more than 100 member countries.
