Partnership With the International Police Commission - IPC

International partners


At the International Police Commission – IPC, we believe that partnership with other organizations in the public and private sectors are essential in order to tackle challenges in common areas.

Transnational crime cannot be countered by the law enforcement community in isolation. By engaging in partnerships across sectors, we can share expertise, technology and resources, and so strengthen our joint response.

External organizations can bring a new and valuable dimension to the International Police Commission’s activities, with their contributions benefiting the International Police Commission’s entire network of member countries.

Cooperation across sectors

The International Police Commission – IPC cooperates closely with a number of partners in the public sector, and maintains consultative representation at the United Nations and the European Union.

We also work with select partners from the private sector, encompassing both for-profit entities and non-profit bodies, such as non-governmental organizations and foundations.
