Police forces around the world have been rapidly embracing technology and research to stay ahead of criminals, prevent crime and protect communities. New policing strategies demand backing from research to uncover what works and what does not work in policing.

The World Police Summit invites global experts from police forces, law enforcement agencies, universities, research institutions and the private sector with vested interests in public safety and security to submit their research findings, tactical strategies, technical innovations, state-of-the-art technologies, and best practices that meet the immediate priorities of the entire policing and law enforcement ecosystem.

All submitted abstracts will go through an unbiased review and evaluation process by the Technical Committee, composed of senior law enforcement professionals and domain experts. Successful authors will be invited to speak at the technical sessions of the respective conferences covering Crime Prevention, Forensics, Anti-Narcotics, Police innovation & Resilience, Drones and K9.

Technical Categories

Experts can choose from across 11 thematic technical categories, all of which have multiple subcategories addressing the pressing priorities for policing and law enforcement agencies.

Please have a thorough read through all the categories and select one category that describes your abstract best. Please do not submit the same abstract more than once, as duplicates will be deleted.
