Doors open to World Police Summit 2024

World Police Summit

Held under the Patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and hosted by Dubai Police,  day one of the World Police Summit reflected on the event’s dedication to addressing the evolving landscape of global security and crime prevention.

Sessions on the first day of the show were rich in content and insight, and underscored the summit’s forward-looking approach, particularly through a pivotal leadership discussion on the ‘Evolution of Cybercrime and Criminal Tactics’.

Esteemed panelists, including Interpol’s Enrique Hernandez Gonzalez, the UK’s Paul Foster, David Hammond from the Institute for Economics and Peace, and Mustafa Ünal Erten from the UNODC, provided invaluable perspectives on combating the ever-changing nature of cyber threats, a press release said.

Session summaries

Speaking on the progress made in the face of new challenges to security and public safety, including the “increased prevalence of cyber and international crime”, Lieutenant General Nguyen Duy Ngoc called for transparency and accountability in policing, as well as greater collaboration amongst global law enforcement agencies.

“The Police Force of Vietnam believes the law serves as both as a tool for social management and human governance as well as a means for the people to scrutinise the performance of the police for improved quality of service,” he said.

Meanwhile, Raymond Siu Chak Yee, Commissioner of the Hong Kong Police, clarified what he believes to be a good cop and good policing, placing key emphasis on the values of support and community: “After 26 years of service, I think that good cops are those who can leverage compassion and empathy in their duties.”

Myron Demkiw, Chief of Police of the Toronto Police Service, shared his experiences as a leader in the ever-evolving field of law enforcement and reflected on the major changes he has seen over the past nearly 40 years. “These days I see the need to build resilience in law enforcement. Just like we prioritise providing the best protective equipment for our officers, I believe as leaders we must also ensure that officers have the protection they need for their minds,” he added.
