Major General Dr. Abdul Qudous Abdul Razzaq Al-Obaidli, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Excellence and Pioneering Affairs at Dubai Police, confirmed that the World Police Summit has become a leading specialized global platform for those involved in policing, safety, security and law enforcement as it enables strengthened communication channels between all security agencies from around the world, highlighting the latest security issues and showcasing relevant best practices.
Al-Obaidli further affirmed the success of the summit in its first edition, which attracted elite figures in the police and security fields wanting to face current and future challenges and to keep pace with successive technical changes and emerging technologies.
Al-Obaidli reaffirmed that the second edition of the World Police Summit complements the success of its first edition as it paves the way for the exchange of information between the various police agencies to come up with solutions and recommendations that meet the shared security challenges and objectives.
“We strongly believe that the World Police Summit 2023 will be a golden opportunity for developing worldwide police and security work systems and ensuring all stakeholders are familiar with the various changes and capable of utilizing the latest new and innovative technologies that enhance ways to combat crimes locally and internationally and contribute to the development of police human cadres,” he said.
“The global security challenges highlighted during the World Police Summit require global policing responses,” said Luis Carrilho – United Nations Police Advisor. “It is therefore imperative that the United Nations Police remain fit for purpose with the adequate capacities and capabilities to address current and emerging threats to peace and security.”
“It was an honor to lead the Canadian delegation at the 2022 World Police Summit in Dubai,” said James Ramer – Chief Toronto Police Service, Canada. “With over 2,000 delegates in attendance, it was an excellent opportunity to connect and collaborate on the most significant security challenges and public safety priorities facing our cities. As innovative policing strategies and technologies continue to evolve, it is essential for police and law enforcement agencies to share out knowledge and experience, and work together to enhance public safety in our respective communities.”
