TERRORISM

Terrorism covers a wide range of complex threats. We focus on identifying terrorists and preventively combating their activities.

#1 Methods, mobiles and money.

In order to identify terrorists and disrupt their activities, it is essential to understand these different elements and share information about them

2 Deter, detect and defeat

These concepts are at the heart of our police training on the use of chemical materials to carry out terrorist attacks.

Terrorism covers a wide range of complex threats: organised terrorism in conflict zones, foreign terrorist fighters, radicalised ‘lone wolves’, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive attacks.

  – Terrorist networks

Terrorist groups around the world are luring people, often young people, from their homes to conflict zones, mainly in Iraq and Syria, and increasingly in Libya. The way new recruits are targeted and then radicalised has changed with the rise of social media and other digital communication channels.

Biometric data is becoming increasingly important in identifying foreign terrorist fighters and preventing them from crossing borders. We also encourage the exchange of data collected in combat zones between the military and police.

Through INTERPOL, police authorities in all regions of the world can share intelligence and alerts on transnational terrorist networks to better understand their methods, motives and financing, and thus identify and arrest suspects.

  – CBRNE

Terrorist attacks using CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive) materials can have devastating consequences for people and infrastructure

Terrorist attacks using CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive) materials can have devastating consequences for people and infrastructure

We do this through three levers: information sharing and intelligence analysis, capacity building and training, and operational support.

These activities are in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1540(2004), which recognises that border controls and policing are essential to prevent the proliferation of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and their diversion by non-state actors.
