It is a relatively new concept (1980), having replaced the previous yearly meeting of Heads of Intelligence and CIDs from various countries. The annual conference of Heads of Intelligence and CIDs covers the following topics: the nuts and bolts of police work, intelligence, crime and criminal investigation, technology and forensic issues.
It also handles a variety of other topics, such as policy and people. Issues with the abundance of issues discussed at recent conferences: The increasing number of delegates covering the various topics leaves little room for in-depth debate.
Inadequate time to address these issues in depth tends to weaken both the quality of the debates and the potential conclusions. As the twenty-first century progresses, security issues will multiply at an exponential rate. Their proportions are yet unknown.
Future-oriented policing concerns include cybercrime, the dark web, cryptography, maritime security, the threat posed by drones, challenges arising from unmanaged social media, left-wing extremism, counter-terrorism, drug trafficking, and border difficulties.
Combination of emerging talents in technology and crowd control that are not widely available in security services. Aside from technology, managing today’s furious, and often rowdy, crowds need a new set of skills and innate abilities. Artificial intelligence can bring solutions to a wide range of challenges.
Understanding the psychology of inflamed crowds and making them aware of the perils of their own preferences. As a result, police and security organisations must be equipped with the necessary skills and be well trained. Personnel selection for security organisations, particularly the police, will also require a complete overhaul.
Police forces must reflect the type of society we live in today and be capable of dealing with today’s modern adversaries. Using common iconography to keep track of emerging circumstances, such as on social media like Twitter. Open Source intelligence: Effective use of Open Source intelligence might become a crucial component in many law and order issues today.
To face the problems created by rapid technological development and the emergence of data war battling, emerging issues would necessitate higher innovativeness and agility, as well as the exhibition of newer cognitive talents. A heavy-handed approach usually causes more issues than it solves.
Any method of this nature only leads to a disastrous schism between law enforcement and the general population at a time when fresh techniques and skills are the correct solution. Other goods, like as developments in armament and technology, would face stiff rivalry for funding inside the agencies.
It would be far more difficult to get approval of any such move’s utilitarian elements. More than just learning new skills, police officers must cultivate a changed mindset, including the realisation that force cannot be the solution to every problem.
Because of global technological improvements, security services’ human capabilities must be appropriately suited to a world in which the Internet, social media, and other innovations frequently provide demonstrators and agitators an advantage, and are frequently destructive to law and order.
There is an urgent need to improve: the character of the security discourse — in terms of the breadth and variety of threats, how to bring about improvements in intelligence procedures, investigative methodology, strengthening the ground situation, and so on.
The essential direction and policy imperatives would be provided by an apex level gathering of DGPs/IGPs. dividing the annual DGP/IGP conference into two different conferences: A high-level meeting of DGPs/IGPs to address policy concerns
Separate meeting of intelligence and security professionals (IGs/CID) to discuss methodology, strategies, and the learning of new skills for present and future difficulties.
