Who We Are
Our mission as an international organization began in 1969 when five-eye port authority jurisdictions realized it had become essential to coordinate globally to effectively address serious transnational crime and security to protect public safety, critical infrastructure and the supply chain through strategic collaboration and provide protective security solutions, and thus formed the international alliance.
Our role today continues with an added focus on prevention as a proven defense to preserve security, including community engagement, as it has been a successful practice in reducing vulnerability for authority environments.
One of the primary security focuses has been to improve incident management in the light of experiences such as active shooter incidents. To do this, we brought together policymakers, front-line managers, and experts in the practical application of prevention, protection, and preparedness in mass people environments, especially transport hubs. The task was to find effective outcomes and methods, including best practices, quality assurance management systems, and communication and collaboration solutions. INTERPORTPOLICE has recently released our Best Practices, based on the global findings of many countries and organizations. In addition, it has matched the Best Practices by assisting and identifying an enterprise communication system. The programme is shared globally under the name: See Say Act.
INTERPORTPOLICE is committed to effective global working practices and our protective security efforts. We also work closely with key partners in the wider security profession.
