Founded in 1923, the International Criminal Police Organization is a body of the UN that promotes collaboration and partnership between international police forces. As of 2017, INTERPOL had a total of 192 member states and a budget of €113 million per year. For nearly a century, INTERPOL has been tasked with a plethora of responsibilities, including pharmaceuticals, illicit substances, human trafficking, environmental vandalization, corruption, and terrorism.
INTERPOL offers a unique blend of cooperation and specialization. While it is still a General Assemble, the committee is more committed on specific crimes and has access to police forces all around the world, a resource that is often unattainable by other large committees. Delegates in this committee will not only learn to cooperate with the rest of the UN, but also to focus on the crimes affecting global citizens on a daily basis.
INTERPOL offers the traditional Model United Nations experience with an introduction into specialization for delegates of all experience levels. Position papers are recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The INTERPOL committee will participate in the Summit Program - more information about the Summit can be found here.

Jeremy Fang | Chair
Jeremy Fang is a grade 11 student at West Point Grey Academy and is excited to be the Chair of INTERPOL for CAHSMUN 2020. Throughout his 4 year Model UN journey he has become captivated and intrigued by international relations, debate, and collaboration that comes from Model United Nations. Over the course of the conference he is confident that you will make new friends and fully engage with everything that CAHSMUN has to offer. Aside from Model United Nations, you can find Jeremy playing basketball and baseball, debating, or frantically trying to figure out how to pull his grades up. Please feel free to contact him if you have any questions or concerns. He is looking forward to seeing you all at the conference!
Brendon Huang | Chair
Brendon is currently a Grade 12 student at Fraser Heights Secondary School and is ecstatic to chair INTERPOL at CAHSMUN 2020. Since attending his first MUN conference in Grade 8, where he only raised his placard once, Brendon has developed an interest in debate and diplomacy that Model UN entails. Many years later, Brendon has raised his placard a little more at several MUN conferences and progressed to become a staff member. Outside of MUN, Brendon can be found watching Youtube videos for an ungodly amount of hours, procrastinating on assignments that he should have completed long ago, working out, and hanging out with friends. Brendon looks forward to witnessing a weekend of lively debate and fruitful discussions. Brendon wishes all delegates the best of luck at CAHSMUN 2020.
