Interpol is proposing the creation of virtual police stations in the metaverse to combat online sex offenses, child abuse, and terrorism. The idea is to have law enforcement agencies and experts operate in the virtual world and collaborate with tech companies to identify and investigate criminal activities. This initiative aims to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds, allowing authorities to monitor and address online threats more effectively. By establishing a presence in the metaverse, Interpol hopes to improve efforts in combatting cybercrime and protecting vulnerable individuals from online exploitation.
