The International Police or Interpol is an international organization created to fight international criminals and establish public security in the member states. This organization's main goals are to cooperate with the police of the member countries and coordinate the judicial authorities of these countries in the fight against criminals and international crimes.

A red notice or a notice for wanted persons is a notice that can be used to prosecute people who commit a crime and flee to another country or countries. The red notice states that the country's Interpol office where the wanted person is located must immediately notify the Interpol office of the requesting country and the central secretariat.

For countries that have recognized the red notice under their judicial system, the red notice is a request for temporary arrest; Therefore, the red notice is the legal basis for the wanted person's arrest. For this reason, the red notice emphasizes from which countries the requesting country requests the extradition of the accused.
