PHILIPPINES WILL BE THE 1ST SEA COUNTRY TO BE CONNECTED TO INTERPOL

What is INTERPOL?




The Philippines is set to be the first Southeast Asian country to be connected to the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) once the modern biometrics capture system will be operational at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).



The Bureau of Immigration (BI) will use the system as part of its continuing efforts to strengthen border security and to thwart the entry of undesirable aliens into the country.


All arriving and departing passengers when being processed at the immigration counters of NAIA will be photographed according to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente.


The pictures will be used in cross-checking with the photo database of the Interpol.

This is to find out if they match the pictures of any of millions of wanted fugitives, terrorists, sex offenders and holders of stolen passports from all over the world who are in the Interpol’s database.
It involves the real-time checking of different Interpol databases at BI immigration counters to detect wanted fugitives, sex offenders, terrorists, UN Sanction List, holders of stolen lost travel documents and missing persons.


Morente revealed that the names of persons of interest in Interpol's photo album are already on the blacklist.

“Eventually, our computers at the airport will be equipped with facial recognition capability that will enable us to immediately detect and apprehend an undesirable alien attempting to enter or flee the country,” he said.

As of now, digital cameras are already installed at BI counters in all three terminals of NAIA.



The immigration officers are now using those cameras in taking pictures of passengers.

The official added that the interconnectivity between the BI and Interpol is soon to be operational as computer programs from both agencies have been conducting dry runs and technical tests prior to the launching of the so-called Fixed Interpol Network Database project.
