INTERPOL Washington Continues Support to U.S. Law Enforcement

In the face of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, INTERPOL Washington—the U.S. National Central Bureau—continues around-the-clock operations. While we have taken a variety of social distancing measures and curtailed domestic and international travel for our employees, the full suite of INTERPOL’s information sharing systems and resources remain available.

INTERPOL Washington services are available to law enforcement only. Detailed information on requesting our assistance is available here. Private citizens or non-law enforcement entities should contact their local law enforcement agency or other appropriate state, local or federal authority for assistance.

A component of the U.S. Department of Justice, INTERPOL Washington is co-managed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. As the designated representative to INTERPOL on behalf of the Attorney General, INTERPOL Washington serves as the national point of contact for all INTERPOL matters, coordinating international investigative efforts among member countries and the more than 18,000 local, state, federal, and tribal law enforcement agencies in the United States.
