Red corner notice

A red notice is a request used by Interpol to request extradition.

Overview

Certain requests used by Interpol are sent in the form of notices. The color of each notice determines the type of information being sent or received by Interpol and its members.

An Interpol red notice is issued at the request of a country's law enforcement authority. The requesting country asks for a red notice to be issued when a criminal evades arrest and escapes from the country. Interpol's role is to assist the national police forces in identifying or locating those persons with a view to their arrest and extradition.

Two types of red notices can be issued: the first type is based on an arrest warrant and is issued for a person wanted for prosecution; the second type is based on a court decision for a person wanted to serve a sentence.
