At the 90th INTERPOL General Assembly, New Delhi’s global police organization launched its first-ever Metaverse, which is said to be designed especially for law enforcement worldwide.
The INTERPOL Metaverse allows registered users to take a tour of the virtual INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, France and further, allows them to interact with other officers via their avatars. Not just this, they will get to take immersive training courses in forensic investigation and other policing-related courses.
INTERPOL Secure Cloud is employed to run the Metaverse, ensuring advanced-level security and digital protection. During the session, General Assembly delegates got to enter the Lyon building using virtual reality headsets in their various avatars.

INTERPOL also announced the creation of an Expert Group on the Metaverse to represent the concerns of law enforcement on the global stage.
Using the metaverse, police can enhance their awareness of the threats. As the number of Metaverse users grows, crimes will only expand to include crimes against money laundering, children, financial fraud, data theft, phishing, counterfeiting, ransomware, phishing, and sexual assault and harassment.
Capacity building in the Metaverse offers students opportunities to network and collaborate, increasing greater engagement via enabling activities.
In a live demonstration, the experts from the INTERPOL delivered a compact training course in a Metaverse classroom. All the student were teleported to a virtual airport where they applied their new-learned skills in a complete virtual environment inside Metaverse.
