The World Police Summit is a high-level engagement platform that brings together leaders and professionals from the international law enforcement and policing community to cross-pollinate ideas, examine crime trends, and share innovations in order to combat the challenges to public safety and security posed by organized crime, rapid population growth, urbanization, and evolving digital technology, among others.
The Summit scheduled to cover the entire law enforcement and policing value chain will provide participants with the thought-leadership, direction, strategies and technologies required to augment public safety in the face of growing global security threats, including terrorism, money laundering, and cybercrime.
