INTERPOL, the international police structure, presented its brand new project on October 18 : an entire metaverse dedicated to its activities. It was during the 90th General Assembly held in New Delhi that the launch was announced.

This project is already functional since the various delegates present on site were able to directly test this new virtual world. Using virtual reality headsets, they were able to visit the offices of the head office located in Lyon.

INTERPOL explained in an official statement that it was important for them to take their place in a world that is becoming more concrete and taking more and more space.

What will the INTERPOL metaverse be used for ?

With this novelty, INTERPOL wants to adapt to the web of tomorrow. Its metaverse will be used in particular for team training.

They will also use it to ensure meetings or simply to be able to communicate thanks to their respective avatars.

For example, they mentioned the control procedures in airports where they could experience a virtual situation very close to reality and thus get closer to the conditions encountered in reality.

Secondly, the global police organization explains that its goal is to be able to strengthen security in the metaverses. In its press release, INTERPOL explains that the metaverse is not just about games (play to earn and other current metaverses).

The web is growing and metaverses are likely to be the new way we will use the web in the near future.

INTERPOL therefore wants to get ahead and start adapting to the realities of tomorrow. They explain in particular that they now have a group of experts dedicated to research and development on the metaverse.

This step forward from such a structure still shows the reality in which we live and towards which we are going.

Metaverses are still today considered very vague and illusory by a large part of the world’s population. Everything suggests, however, that they will be our new way of using the internet.

A fight against the new cybercrime

INTERPOL is the first judicial organization to integrate web3 in this way, and for good reason. The crypto market, decentralized finance, are often victims of hackers and thefts of all kinds.

According to the international police organization, the metaverses are no exception to these problems and the growing number of users of these platforms only increases the possibilities for scams.

This transition aims to equip itself as quickly as possible with the necessary means to combat these crimes as effectively as possible. In its press release, INTERPOL explains that the list of crimes could only increase in the near future, including crimes against children, data theft, money laundering, etc.
