ABU DHABI —The Abu Dhabi Interpol has officially joined the DNA database of the International Crimes Police Organisation, to get access to over 77,000 DNA profiles in the Interpol’s International DNA database.

The Interpol’s DNA Charter was signed recently after the closing ceremony of the 18th Interpol conference, which was attended by Major General Obaid bin Alhiri, Deputy Commander General of Abu Dhabi Police, at the Great Hall of the Department of Criminal Evidence.

The agreement was signed by Lt Colonel Ali Salem Al Khayal, Director of the crimes international cooperation department, at Abu Dhabi Interpol. From the other side, the agreement was signed by the representative of Interpol, Warner Chulner.

Al Khayal said that joining the international DNA database would grant access to the Interpol’s International DNA database which has over 77,000 DNA profiles pooled in from 48 countries worldwide.

He stressed that joining the Interpol’s DNA gate will strengthen the country’s efforts in the fight against crimes.
