Interpol holds its 87th General Assembly in Dubai

Dubai will host next week, November 18-21, the 87th International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) General Assembly.

The summit will bring together police leaders and security experts from across the world and will be used as a platform to discuss security challenges and unite global efforts to combat transnational organized crime.

Head of the security establishment of Dubai, Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri welcomed the event, saying that Dubai Police for the past few years has worked closely with local, regional and international police forces on various initiatives ranging from capacity building to drug seizure and prevention of crimes.

With the rapid development of knowledge, science and technology, the security landscape is evolving rapidly and becoming more complex and globalized, he noted, adding that in line with the UAE Centennial Plan 2071, Dubai Police is implementing Artificial Intelligence technologies across its services, in a bid to anticipate future challenges, potential threats and crime trends.

The Dubai Police was recently awarded by European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) the Platinum award for its outstanding results. Dubai Police became the first in the world to receive the award, he noted.

Dubai had also hosted last September 25-26 the International Law Enforcement Intellectual Property Crime Conference, held under the theme: Combatting the Global Wave Crime of Illicit Trade.
