Founded in 1923, the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) is a general UN body that facilitates worldwide police cooperation. For nearly a century, INTERPOL and its 194 members have strived to tackle a plethora of responsibilities such as crimes against humanity, cybercrime, illicit drug production, human trafficking, terrorism, and corruption. INTERPOL acts as a global platform to facilitate collaboration, voice law enforcement on the world stage, and police the world while acting within existing laws of different countries.

 

INTERPOL is designed for beginner delegates and is a double delegation committee. Though position papers are not required, they are recommended to ensure delegates feel prepared and comfortable throughout the conference.

Max Chetner

Director

Entering his Senior Year at St. George’s school, Max is super excited to be directing INTERPOL at VYMUN 2019. Max has been involved in Model UN since grade 8 and has been very lucky to have attended over 10 conferences throughout his past four years in high school. MUN has created many of Max’s most cherished high-school memories, in which he has been able to broaden his knowledge of international affairs and gain valuable public speaking skills - while having lots of fun. When not attending a MUN conference, Max enjoys spending his time playing Hockey and Rugby, Skiing in Whistler, hanging out with friends and family, traveling, and volunteering with various organizations.  Max is ecstatic to be serving as your director for INTERPOL and hopes to create a truly memorable experience for all of his delegates.

Zara Smith

Chair

Currently a sophomore at West Point Grey Academy, Zara is ecstatic to be the Chair of INTERPOL at VYMUN 2019. Zara started her MUN journey at VYMUN 2017. Though timid at first, she grew more comfortable at sparking debate, and grew increasingly eager with each conference. Since then, she has participated in conferences across Canada and the US, furthering her love for the world of MUN! In her spare time, you can find Zara shopping downtown, at the beach, or attempting to tackle ambitious adventures around BC. She is looking forward to the engaging debate and fruitful discussions at VYMUN 2019, and she hopes that anyone new to MUN feels comfortable approaching her for help!
