Digital technologies, such as cryptocurrency, robotics, artificial intelligence and virtual reality, have advanced rapidly in the last few years. As new-age crimes emerge, the police now have to make sure they are two steps ahead of gangs and racketeers. The inaugural World Police Summit in Dubai, which begins tomorrow, will discuss how cops are fighting crime in a digital-first world.

More than 200 speakers and 150 exhibitors are coming together for the four-day summit at the Dubai Exhibition Centre, Expo 2020.

Senior officials of the United Nations and the Interpol — as well as various city and state police forces and private organisations with policing-focused products and solutions — will take part in the summit.

The summit and trade show will spotlight themes such as crime prevention, forensic science, anti-narcotics, police innovation and resilience, drones, K9 and more.

“As the threat landscape changes dramatically, law enforcement often finds it challenging to keep pace and evolve. For policing authorities specifically and crime prevention at large, there is a critical need to build platforms that enable true collaboration for knowledge and experience-sharing, with the ultimate goal of ensuring safer societies,” said Lt-Gen Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police.

“We are proud to host the inaugural summit in Dubai, a city renowned for connecting the world, and, alongside Expo 2020, connecting minds.”

Confirmed speakers at the summit include Lt-Gen Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chief of Police and General Security of Dubai; Commissioner Luis Carrilho, United Nations police advisor; Dwight Henninger, president, International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP); as well as a host of luminaries from policing, security and cybersecurity, and from public and private organisations across the world.

Christopher Hudson, president of dmg events, said: “Over 150 internationally renowned organisations will exhibit innovations in everything, from anti-narcotics and forensics to artificial intelligence, security and surveillance, presenting valuable opportunities for more than 10,000 policing and security professionals and buyers to engage in networking and purchasing.”

He added that the event will further cement Dubai’s position as a meeting point for the sharing of experience, learning, trends, and innovation for the betterment of the world.

“The event is the latest and innovative one among other sector-related industry platforms that Dubai is hosting for the benefit of authorities and organisations the world over,” he said.
