The Supreme Committee of the World Police Summit announced that the fourth edition of the summit will take place under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai from May 13 to 15 next year.

Under the theme “Designing the Future of Policing”, the Summit will address critical themes in line with global changes and the fifth industrial revolution.

This announcement was made during a press conference led by Major General Dr. Abdul Quddus Abdul Razzaq Al Obaidly, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Excellence and Pioneering, Chairman of the Supreme Committee of the World Police Summit, Brigadier Dr. Saleh Al Hamrani, Deputy Director of the General Department of Excellence and Pioneering, and Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Rashid Hamdan Al Ghafri, Director of the International Centre for Criminal Sciences and Secretary-General of the World Police Summit, along with other Committee members, officers, and personnel.

Major General Dr. Abdul Quddus Al Obaidly stated that the fourth edition of the World Police Summit marks a qualitative shift in its approach, aligning with global transformations concurrent with the fifth industrial revolution, UAE national news agency WAM reported.

“These transformations, directed by Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, have prompted us to enhance our security agenda with strategies and visions that align with these changes. Thus, we launched an advanced security system called ‘Policing 5.0’ during the third edition of the Summit. This system relies on advanced technical enablers and systems to enhance security, provide flexible and innovative smart services to the public, and achieve welfare, stability, and quality of life,” he said.

Al Obaidly emphasised that the core of the World Police Summit lies in bringing together police leaders, law enforcement agencies, and specialised experts from the policing and security sectors with experts from other related fields to discuss, collaborate, and exchange experiences. This aims to integrate efforts and objectives, ultimately leading to safer communities.

He further noted that the new system envisions and designs the future of global policing and security work. Through the upcoming Summit, they aim to create the future of policing in a technology-supportive environment, identifying necessary technological adoptions for the security sector to achieve strategic goals.

For his part, Brigadier Dr. Saleh Al Hamrani said: “We believe that international cooperation and the exchange of best practices and expertise is the most effective way to keep pace with these unprecedented changes. Innovation, flexibility, and foresight in security work are the best ways to address challenges, seize opportunities, and develop innovative mechanisms and methods, establishing international collaborative platforms focusing on community safety and security.”

He noted that the 2025 Summit includes eight main highlights, including: a tech exhibition showcasing the latest supportive products, brainstorming sessions where international police leaders discuss urgent policing challenges, and a launchpad offering startups opportunities for accelerated growth in public safety. Additionally, the event features a display centre for interactive presentations, specialised platforms for police and security officials, an area for entrepreneurs, Summit Awards celebrating excellence in policing, and a grand opening and dinner ceremony fostering dialogues and partnerships.

Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Rashid Hamdan Al Ghafri noted that the World Police Summit has shown positive progression in its policing, security, scientific, and technical discussions, aligning with global changes.

“Over three years, the summit has established itself as a comprehensive international scientific platform for leading police chiefs, experts, and law enforcement personnel. It has hosted over 15,000 visitors, 8,000 conference delegates, 200 speakers, more than 100 Police Chiefs, and 250 exhibiting companies from 44 countries, all coming together on one platform to produce effective outcomes and partnerships enhancing policing and security work in communities,” he confirmed.

The INTERPOL stated: “The World Police Summit is a great platform for law enforcement agencies to unite and forge stronger bonds of cooperation. At INTERPOL, we believe in the power of collaboration to tackle the ever-evolving challenges of global security. By working together, we can exchange knowledge, innovate, and develop strategies that help us enhance the safety and security of our communities worldwide.”
