31 Jan 2021
MPS22536 The Maldives Police Service has successfully integrated the Police Information Management System (PIMS) with INTERPOL real time databases through INTERPOL FIND solution. This solution will provide integrated access to INTERPOL Databases to all relevant MPS officers, including those at Divisional Police Stations. Police officers working in the frontline will now be connected to INTERPOL’s wide range of global criminal databases, providing the ability to instantly search against millions of records pertaining to INTERPOL Notices and Stolen Lost Travel Documents recorded by INTERPOL member countries. INTERPOL databases are a valuable tool that would help the frontline officers to instantly identify international fugitives, victims and other persons of interest and improve international police cooperation. With the growth of local tourism and expatriate population in the remote islands of Maldives, the need for such information is of immense importance for the Police officers, to address the threat of terrorism and other emerging transnational criminal threats. This important milestone was achieved with the continued assistance provided by the INTERPOL Project GEMINI team and all relevant international and local stakeholders. INTERPOL enables Police organizations around the world to work together to make the world a safer place. International police cooperation is vital in making world a safer place. The Maldives Police Service appreciates the important role INTERPOL plays in this. The Maldives Police Service will continue to work closely with INTERPOL to provide all the support needed for international police cooperation.
