DUBAI, 13th March, 2022 (WAM) — Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, the World Police Summit commences on 14th March, 2022, at the Dubai Exhibition Centre.
Hosted and organised by Dubai Police and in collaboration with dmg events, the summit features four full days of themed conferences and keynote addresses and panel discussions with experts from organisations such as the United Nations, Interpol, various city, and state police forces, as well as private sector organisations with policing-focused products and solutions.
Lt. General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said, “As the threat landscape alters 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 goal of ensuring safer societies. We are proud to host the inaugural summit in Dubai, a city renowned for connecting the world, and, alongside Expo 2020, connecting minds.”
This is the inaugural edition of this critical, sector-focused summit and trade show. It will spotlight themes such as Crime Prevention, Forensic Science, Anti-Narcotics, Police Innovation and Resilience, Drones, K9, and more. The summit will feature more than 200 speakers and over 150 exhibitors.
Christopher Hudson, President, dmg events, said, “Dubai has built an enviable calendar of collaboration platforms focused on individual sectors, and from the response we have seen from our speaker panel, our partner organisations and exhibitors, and visitor registrations, it is evident that a policing-focused platform is timely and relevant. By bringing police and law enforcement together with service providers, thought-leaders, innovators, and more, the summit will be a catalyst for improved security and safety for citizens the world over.”
Confirmed speakers 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), a host of luminaries from policing, security, and cybersecurity, and public and private organisations the world over.
The exhibition floor at the summit is populated by organisations that contribute products and services that enable effective policing and security, including through technology, hardware, apparel, accessories, and other requisite aids. Major exhibitors include Huawei, Dell Technologies, Airbus, Rafael, Leonardo, and Kaspersky, among others.
Taking place in Dubai between 14th and 17th March 2022, the World Police Summit is hosted by Dubai Police, and organised by dmg events. With over 150 exhibitors and 10,000 registered visitors, in addition to its myriad speakers and delegates, the Summit will offer an extensive range of technological and intellectual resources that law enforcement agencies can leverage to address the needs and challenges of modern happenings such as cybercrime, urbanisation, digital evolution and post-pandemic recovery – all with the common goal of ensuring a safer world for all.
