Head of UK crime agency’s visit to INTERPOL focuses on security cooperation ahead of London Olympics

March 12, 2012

INTERPOL on March 9, 2012 released the following:

“LYON, France – Security at the upcoming London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics was a key area for discussion during today’s meeting between the Director General of the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), Trevor Pearce, and INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

During his visit to INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters, the SOCA Chief was briefed on INTERPOL’s range of tools and services which will be provided as part of the security arrangements for the Summer Games in July and August, when INTERPOL will deploy a Major Events Support Team to London.

“INTERPOL is a key international partner in the fight against transnational crime. Cooperation and the exchange of information between countries on issues such as terrorism, illegal immigration and border protection are vital elements in our action against these,” said Trevor Pearce.

“INTERPOL and the UK already benefit from a strong relationship in many areas, and today’s meeting with Mr Pearce has served to further underline our joint commitment to working even more closely together, particularly during the Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Mr Noble.

In this respect, the Head of INTERPOL praised the UK’s ‘exemplary’ efforts in its use of the world police body’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents (SLTD) database, with the country ranking amongst the top four of INTERPOL’s 190 member countries in searching and contributing intelligence to the database.

The SLTD database – the only one of its kind in the world – currently contains almost 32 million records from 162 countries.

Mr Pearce was accompanied by SOCA’s Executive Director, Strategy and Prevention, Gerry Liddell, and by David Armond, Head of SOCA’s International Directorate.”
