….in a bid to learn about innovative and technology related ways of investigating
he Royal Eswatini Police Service (REPS), in an effort to support His Majesty’s Government endeavour of revitalising the economy, continues to look for innovative and advanced ways of fighting crime and safeguarding public security in the country.
Last week, three senior officers of the police service who are Senior Deputy National Commissioner Emmanuel Sula Dlamini, Deputy National Commissioner Vusi Manoma Masango and Assistant National Commissioner Christopher Shongwe, joined hundreds of security specialists from around the world in Doha, in the State of Qatar to partake in the Milipol Qatar 2018 12th International Exhibition for Internal State Security. The exhibition was held from 29-31 October at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC) and was attended by 314 delegates from 103 countries around the world. The exhibition was hosted under the patronage of the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad AlThani.
During this event which has
Tbecome globally acclaimed as one of the most important specialised security exhibitions at the international level dedicated to displaying the latest security and safety equipment and technologies, availed an opportunity to participants to view the latest technologically advanced gadgets, necessary for the enhancement of public security measures within their respective jurisdictions in a global terrain marked by rapid change and complexity in crime, allied law and order challenges.
Leader of the delegation Senior Deputy National Commissioner Dlamini highlighted that the exhibition was a real eye -opener in ensuring that the local police service keeps abreast with the latest trends in policing across the spheres of modern crime investigation methods as well as in the arena of public security.
Dlamini said top of the agenda during the two day exhibition which also incorporated seminars where law enforcement specialists from more advanced countries shared experiences and practices, was cyber security and cyber threats. This phenomenon is presenting itself as a problem to many countries’ economies including that of Eswatini necessitating that security agencies such as the REPS acquire the technical knowledge in dealing with digitalised crimes.
The senior deputy national commissioner said REPS was very fortunate to be part of such an insightful exhibition and seminars as it featured the leading entities in the security industry. He said Milipol Qatar 2018 was also a unique opportunity for law enforcement officials to mingle and forge working networks with participants from other countries for ongoing collaboration and support on security issues.
