International Security Leaders Meet at the 81st Interpol General Assembly

Interpol, the International Criminal Police Organization, has over 190 member countries working together to make the world safer through international police cooperation. Interpol holds a General Assembly in a different country each year in order to further this goal. Nicholas Janitsary has spoken at past Interpol General Assemblies on topics related to criminology, international security, and business. The founder of New Dimension Group, a security and defense consulting firm, Nicholas Janitsary works to facilitate understanding of differing business practices between countries.

The 81st Interpol General Assembly took place in November 2012, in Rome, Italy. Delegates appointed by their countries’ governments met to discuss the Assembly’s theme: challenges for the police in addressing contemporary criminal violence. Law enforcement officials examined those challenges and shared strategies for responding to national and international criminal violence.

The Interpol General Assembly makes all major decisions affecting the organization, including developing and establishing policies and electing Interpol’s Executive Committee.
