NCB-Interpol Indonesia also has received many requests on assistance in checking its own database related to the lost/stolen weapons which has been discovered by police of other countries. NCB-Interpol Indonesia uses the Interpol Global Police Communication System (I-24/7) to submit notices, share crucial police data securely and efficiently with police in other countries and to access the Interpol’s database and service 24 hours a day.
