Dubai Police closely worked with the Interpol and helped them to nab as many as 9,000 criminals who were on the world's most-wanted list.

The figure came straight from Jurgen Stock, secretary-general of Interpol, as he addressed the crowd at the World Police Summit currently being held in Dubai.

Stock said these suspects were believed to have carried out financial crimes that resulted in losses worth more than €1.6 billion (Dh6.19 billion).

Stock emphasised the importance of international cooperation to bridge security gaps. This increasingly complex reality requires international solutions and strengthening partnerships in all sectors.

Currently, he said, cyber fraud tops the list of international crimes — and these would be difficult to fight with "tools of the past".

Besides the arrests, he said some of the most important results that came out of the UAE's partnership with Interpol are the programmes that they built to boost several countries' crime-fighting capabilities.

"More than 400 training courses [have been] delivered worldwide," he said.

The Interpol chief is optimistic about the future, saying police forces across the globe just have to work together to build a safer world.
