STATE SE­CU­RITY

….in a bid to learn about in­no­va­tive and tech­nol­ogy re­lated ways of in­ves­ti­gat­ing

Observer on Saturday - - News -

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.
