INTERPOL-USNCB—Law Enforcement Agency Representation
The INTERPOL-USNCB operates through well-established cooperative
efforts with federal and state agencies. Pursuant to an interagency
agreement between the Departments of Justice and Treasury, the
INTERPOL-USNCB is an integral part of the Department of Justice, acting in

the Treasury as the alternate U.S. representative to INTERPOL.
The INTERPOL-USNCB is staffed by members of both federal and state law
enforcement agencies. From the Department of Justice, the INTERPOL-USNCB has
a core of permanent and temporary employees, as well as detailed staff
members representing the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Marshals
Service, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, and the Criminal Division.

the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Comptroller of the
Currency, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCIN). Other
