About Blue Corner Notice:

  • A Blue Corner Notice is an integral component of Interpol’s comprehensive system of color-coded notices, facilitating global dissemination of alerts and requests for information regarding wanted individuals or criminal activities.
  • This exchange of critical crime-related data plays a vital role in combating transnational criminal enterprises.

Interpol issues seven types of notices, each serving a distinct purpose:

  • Red Notice: Issued to locate and apprehend individuals wanted for prosecution or to serve a sentence.
  • Yellow Notice: Aimed at locating missing persons, often minors, or individuals unable to identify themselves.
  • Blue Notice: Intended to gather additional information about an individual’s identity, location, or activities in connection with a criminal investigation.
  • Black Notice: Issued to seek information about unidentified bodies.
  • Green Notice: Provides warning about an individual’s criminal activities, posing a potential threat to public safety.
  • Orange Notice: Alerts about events, persons, objects, or processes posing a serious and imminent threat to public safety.
  • Purple Notice: Seeks or provides information on criminal methods, objects, devices, or concealment techniques.

These notices are authorized by Interpol’s General Secretariat at the request of a member country’s Interpol National Central Bureau and are accessible to all member nations for dissemination and action.

About Interpol

  • The International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO), commonly known as INTERPOL, is an international organization that facilitates worldwide police cooperation and crime control.
  • Headquartered in Lyon, it has seven regional bureaus worldwide and a National Central Bureau in all 194 member states, making it the world’s largest police organization.
  • INTERPOL provides investigative support, expertise, and training to law enforcement worldwide, focusing on three major areas of transnational crime: terrorism, cybercrime, and organized crime.
  • Its broad mandate covers virtually every kind of crime, including crimes against humanity, child pornography, drug trafficking and production, political corruption, copyright infringement, and white-collar crime.
  • The agency also facilitates co-operation among national law enforcement institutions through criminal databases and communications networks.
  • Contrary to popular belief, INTERPOL is itself not a law enforcement agency.
  • INTERPOL is mostly funded by annual contributions by member police forces in 181 countries.
  • It is governed by a General Assembly, composed of all member countries, which elects the Executive Committee and the President.
  • Pursuant to its charter, INTERPOL seeks to remain politically neutral in fulfilling its mandate, as it is barred from interventions or activities of a political, military, religious, or racial nature or involving itself in disputes over such matters.
  • The agency operates in four languages: Arabic, English, French, and Spanish.
  • The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is the nodal agency in the INTERPOL for India.
