Global police agency Interpol is investigating how the organisation can probe crimes in the Metaverse, said a report by the BBC. Interpol secretary general Jurgen Stock told the BBC that the agency is making efforts to respond to "sophisticated and professional" criminals who are adapting to any new technological tool available to commit crimes, India Today reported.

The Metaverse is an online world where people exist in shared virtual spaces through their 3D avatars. Interpol also built its own virtual reality (VR) space, recreating its headquarters in Lyon, France. Users can explore the space to take immersive training courses in forensic investigation and other policing capabilities.
