Interpol is determining how to police the metaverse

Must read

The metaverse, a virtual environment that is intended to replace the actual world, is being policed by the International Criminal Police Organization, or Interpol.

Jurgen Stock, the secretary general of Interpol, feels that if the organisation is to keep up with the metaverse and its associated technology, it must be prepared for this task.

Interpol Getting Ready to Surveill the Metaverse

Police agencies are having trouble implementing specific procedures to uphold the law in the metaverse.

The International Criminal Police Organization, Interpol, according to its secretary general Jurgen Stock, must be ready to respond to crimes that are committed online.

The gang is presently prepared to expand its operations to platforms utilised by some groups to commit crimes in the metaverse.

According to Stock, criminals are skilled and professional in quickly adjusting to any new technological tool that is available to commit crime. Stock made this claim in an interview with the BBC.

According to Dr. Madan Oberoi, Interpol’s executive director of technology and innovation, establishing whether an action on the metaverse constitutes a crime or not is one of the organization’s current toughest challenges.

There is a challenge when attempting to apply the definitions of these crimes from physical space to the metaverse.

Oberoi knows for a fact that Interpol must communicate with and be present on metaverse platforms in order to police the metaverse.

The organisation was founded in the metaverse during its 90th General Assembly, which took place in New Delhi in October, for this reason, and it already has its own location there.
