Criminal Police Organization, better known by its telegraphic address
Interpol, is an organization facilitating international police
cooperation. It was established as the International Criminal Police
Commission in 1923 in Austria and adopted its telegraphic address as its
name in 1956. It should not be confused with the International Police,
which takes on an active uniformed role in policing war-torn countries.
In order to maintain as politically neutral a role as possible,
Interpol's constitution forbids its involvement in crimes that do not
overlap several member countries, or in any political, military,
religious, or racial crimes.
