Interpol’s Metaverse Expert Group has released a white paper suggesting that metaverse platforms could be valuable in law enforcement training, crime scene preservation, and analysis. The report explores potential use cases, such as immersive training through metaverse environments to enhance frontline policing effectiveness and the creation of virtual replicas of crime scenes for continuous access and analysis. The white paper also addresses metaverse-related crimes, including nonfungible token fraud, cyber-physical attacks, digital identity theft, and more. Interpol emphasizes the need for a holistic approach, involving multi-stakeholder engagement and cross-border collaboration, to effectively address metacrime in the metaverse.
