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.
Sameer Esmail | Director
Sameer is a Senior at Burnaby Mountain Secondary School and is excited to serve as the Director of the International Criminal Police Organization at CAHSMUN 2019. He began his experience with Model United Nations in Grade 9, drawn by his passion for global affairs, geography, and politics. Since then, Sameer has delegated and staffed at numerous conferences in Vancouver and New York. Outside of the world of Model UN, Sameer is involved in his school’s student government, local political campaigns, debate, and numerous humanitarian causes including a recent service trip to Ecuador. He cannot wait to meet all the delegates at the conference this coming spring. Sameer wishes the best of luck to all the delegates participating this year and hopes that CAHSMUN becomes a positive experience that delegates will feel accomplished looking back upon.
Helen Huang | Chair
As a Senior at MEI Secondary School, Helen Huang first entered the world of Model United Nations and Debate with a major fear for public speaking. After two years of getting into the norm of last-minute prep sessions, Helen has never once underestimated her love for politics and is honoured to serve as the Chair for INTERPOL. Even though she thoroughly commits herself to Public Forum Debate, her love for Model United Nations recently blossomed and had continuously grown after she found thrill in staffing at conferences. Apart from MUN, Helen works as a Debate Coach at BC Forensic League, an academy that captivated her love for speech and debate. If she’s not in a blazer, you’d find her as an Alto Saxophone player or hopelessly trying to fit the Asian standard of becoming a Medical Student. Helen looks forward to hearing from delegates.
Jessica Song | Chair
Jessica Song is a rising senior at Lord Byng Secondary, specializing in the violin at Byng’s mini school program. Ever since attending her first MUN conference in Grade 10, Jessica has been enthralled by the MUN scene and hopes to be able to deliver a similarly wonderful experience to delegates. Through MUN, Jessica has not only been introduced to a world of fast-paced debate and diplomacy but also learned more about international relations and met amazing people. When not jamming to her new favourite classical piece, Jessica enjoys devouring sweets and binge-watching k-drama. Jessica is thrilled about this opportunity and warmly welcomes all delegates to CAHSMUN 2019!
