DUSHANBE, August 5, 2015, Asia-Plus – Senior representatives of the Interpol National Central Bureaus (NCBs) for Tajikistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran have reportedly held talks in Dushanbe to discuss cooperation issues.

According to the Tajik Interior Ministry’s website, a delegation of the Interpol NCB for Iran, led by Colonel Samad Abbas, visited the Interpol CNB for Tajikistan in Dushanbe on August 5.

The two sides reportedly discussed issues related to bilateral cooperation between the Interpol NCBs for Tajikistan and Iran in preventing crimes.

The Interpol National Central Bureau for Tajikistan is a sub-division of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Staffed by nearly 20 officials, it is the essential link between Tajik national law enforcement and Interpol's international law enforcement community, serving as the contact point for all Interpol investigations relating to Tajikistan or requiring action from Tajik police forces.

Its responsibilities include: to facilitate criminal investigations, intelligence exchange and joint operations with all Interpol member countries; to provide investigative support to the Interpol community for international fugitive investigations, and proceed with the location and apprehension of fugitives thought to be taking refuge in Tajikistan; to develop and maintain a working relationship with all law enforcement agencies in Tajikistan; to help keep Tajikistan safe by giving domestic law enforcement partners access to Interpol databases via the I-24/7 global police communications system; to share national scientific and technical police expertise for tackling international crime with the Interpol community; and to populate the Interpol databases with criminal information from domestic law enforcement partners.

Created in 1877, Iran’s national police force is an independent organization headed by the Commander in Chief of Armed Forces.  Part of the International Relations and Interpol Department, the Interpol National Central Bureau (NCB) for Iran is responsible for assisting Iranian investigations requiring international police cooperation and for working with the Interpol police community.
