At the 90th INTERPOL General Assembly in New Delhi, the global police organization revealed the premiere Metaverse constructed particularly for law enforcement all around the world.

The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) is building on its digital reality headsets as it braces for crimes in the Metaverse. This completely operational INTERPOL Metaverse enables registered customers to have a look at the virtual facsimile of the INTERPOL General Secretariat office in Lyon, France without physically being there. The users can make conversations with their digital avatars, talk to other officers, and enjoy immersive training courses in foreign investigation and alternate policing ventures.

In this interactive session held in New Delhi with the delegates of the General Assembly, it was virtually shown how to enter the Lyon building via avatars along with virtual reality headsets. According to Madan Oberoi, Interpol’s Executive Director of Technology and Innovation, the Metaverse has the ability to revolutionize each facet of our regular lives with massive consequences for law enforcement. To be able to implement their duty, the police need to first understand and absorb the concept.

Moreover, people have already been sentenced to punishment in Metaverse jails for crimes in the virtual world. A South Korean man was recently punished with four years in prison for sexually harassing kids in the Metaverse, and asking them to send lewd photos and videos.

Interpol is now working to grow a unit specifically for the crackdown on crypto cases. Secretary General of Interpol Jürgen Stock mentioned the importance of this particular department since several law enforcement agencies are presently not completely resourceful when it comes to dealing with the troubles of this sector.

Not only that, Praveen Sinha, who is the special director of India’s Central Bureau of Investigation, acknowledged how difficult it is to supervise cybercrime because of its massive scale. Sinha also suggested that the only way forward is to coordinate and collaborate to make the efforts easier and more facile.

Research from Gartner suggested that Metaverse will be part of one in every four people to study, shop, work, or socialize. As crime finds its way into the virtual world, Interpol doesn’t wish to play catch-up but becomes the front-runner in ensuring the safety of its people.
