PARIS - Interpol says it will help Olympic organizers with security and in cracking down on doping and match-fixing.

The international police agency says in a statement Thursday that it signed a deal with the International Olympic Committee to co-operate on security. The deal does not specifically target the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, which start next week.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, acts like a clearinghouse for information from national police forces around the world.

The deal with the IOC says it will focus on identifying potential doping and match-fixing and attempted corruption of officials and players.

The IOC is putting up $20 million to fight doping and match-fixing — considered the two biggest threats to the credibility of the Olympics.
