International Criminal Police Organization is an inter-governmental organization consisting of 195 member countries and it assists the police in the member countries to prevent crimes. The organization enables law enforcement agencies to share and access data on crimes and criminals, and it offers a range of technical and operational support in order to make the world a safer place to live. The General Secretariat coordinates day-to-day activities to fight a range of crimes. Run by the Secretary-General, it is staffed by both police and civilians and comprises a headquarters in Lyon, a global complex for innovation in Singapore and several satellite offices in different regions[i].

Considering the situation in the United Kingdom where the globalized nature of serious and organized crime is arguably the single greatest threat to UK national security. Corruption is one of the threats to UK’s national security as it can undermine political, social and economic stability, and ultimately threaten the safety and security of society as a whole. Moreover, corruption is a universal crime and creates a proliferating ground for organized criminal activities, even terrorism, as criminals are aided in their illegal activities by the complicity of corrupt public officials.
