Main areas of activity

The NCB works to combat a number of priority crimes with an international dimension, including:
  • The search for, location and identification of fugitives and missing people;
  • Organized crime and terrorism;
  • Economic crime and counterfeit currency;
  • Trafficking in stolen vehicles;
