Danino described Interpol’s decision to hold the meeting in Israel as a “big honor.” He added that law enforcement agencies in Europe are facing many challenges, and that cooperation was vital for lowering crime and maintaining public order.

Tel Aviv will host the three-day Interpol conference, which will be the 41st international parley of its kind, and will feature sensitive security discussions behind closed doors. It will attract some 200 police brass from 50 countries, as well as ministers and international observers. During the conference senior police will propose various action plans to increase crime fighting. The final proposals will be presented at the Interpol General Assembly in November in Italy.

Major issues will include dealing with terrorism threats, technological crime, financial offenses, extraditions, illegal migration, demonstrations, organized crime, and narcotics.

Israel joined the international police organization, which counts 190 countries as members, in 1949.
