The Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police (PICP) is proud to present the launch of INTERPOL Project Blue Pacific.

The Pacific has long recognised transnational and organised crime as a significant security issue, with numerous calls made by Pacific leaders along the way for a more comprehensive, integrated, and collaborative approach to address this.

First endorsed by 19 Pacific Police Chiefs and Commissioners at the 2022 annual PICP conference, Project Blue Pacific aims to bolster Pacific law enforcements response to transnational organised crime, specifically, through enhanced information sharing across the Pacific region.

Delivered over three years (1 January 2024 – 31 December 2026), the project will facilitate the enduring utilization of INTERPOL resources to enhance information sharing through three key streams: Capacity Building and Training, INTERPOL Policing Capabilities, Regional Cooperation.

The project will work with 11 beneficiary countries, including Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. Employing a capacity building approach in its design and execution, the project aims to instigate gradual individual and institutional transformations, along with infrastructural enhancements to amplify the effectiveness of law enforcement agencies.

By bolstering regional crime monitoring and prevention activities, this project serves as a clear commitment to building resilience against transnational and organised crimes in the Pacific. It also serves as a tangible contribution towards the Regional Transnational Organised Crime Disruption Strategy and 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent.

Project Blue Pacific is funded by the Australian Federal Police, the New Zealand Police, the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office/National Crime Agency and is delivered in strategic alliance with the PICP.
