  1. The International Law Enforcement Alert Platform (I-LEAP) is a new single technical mechanism that is being developed to enable UK law enforcement agencies to access, share and take action on alerts related to people, documents and objects with international partners on a reciprocal basis

The current priority of the I-LEAP programme, which is at an early stage of development, is to further enhance the UK’s connectivity to INTERPOL. We aim to initiate two pilots at the end of this year that will test I-LEAP’s real-time connection to INTERPOL nominals data in a live environment. The gradual rollout of I-LEAP’s INTERPOL capability to UK policing more widely should then commence in 2022.
