Jürgen Stock

INTERPOL Secretary General, INTERPOL


Jürgen Stock was appointed as Secretary General of INTERPOL in November 2014 and was re-appointed in October 2019 to serve a second five-year term. He has more than 40 years of policing experience. Secretary General Stock has initiated changes in four key areas: to improve core business services to police, establish strong partnerships, embrace innovation, and strengthen governance structures and mechanisms. He established four global programmes to guide all INTERPOL’s policing activities: Counter-Terrorism, Organized and Emerging Crime, Cybercrime, and Financial Crime and Corruption. Since 2014, Secretary General Stock has also overseen the creation of a specialized task force to review Red Notice requests, a new Statute for the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files, a review of the legal framework around the Organization’s governing bodies, and a change in the funding model to focus more on public sector contributions.
