Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A description of the International Criminal Police Organization and its role in disaster victim identification is provided along with a summary of the standards developed and circulated to responders in INTERPOL member countries (188 throughout the world) to insure evidence-based DVI practices. Following the INTERPOL-mediated DVI response in 2005 to the SE Asia tsunami, many lessons learned have been recorded. Based on these current standards, INTERPOL's approach to DVI reflects a modern approach and philosophy.
