Because of increasing technology, telecommunication, and transportation, crime activities have become borderless. Therefore, the needs of international cooperation and establishments are undeniable. However, the current state of international cooperation can be characterized as too formal and too limited due to so many barriers, such as technical and policy-related barriers and cultural barriers. To overcome these problems, it is proposed that of an International Institute for Police, Research, and Training (IPRT) be established in Turkey. The purpose of this article is to understand why international cooperation is necessary, the role of Turkish National Police (TNP) in the international arena, the role and structure of IPRT, and why this center should be instituted in Turkey.
