The Middle East's Interior Ministries, police departments and law enforcement agencies will be given a unique preview later this year of the latest technology available to combat terrorism and other threats to regional security.
Dramatic anti-hijacking simulations, SWAT team enactments, and anti-terrorist operations will be among a series of demonstrations staged during the first Middle East Police and Law Enforcement Exhibition and Conference (MEPLEX), taking place within the secured premises of Dubai Police Academy from October 6 – 9.
Dubai's role in staging the event is particularly appropriate in view of the fact the IMF/ World Bank annual meeting to be held in the emirate in 2003 will require a major security operation. “In the light of the September 11 attacks on the US, and the subsequent new ‘war on terrorism', public safety and security has become a top priority for Interior Ministries, police departments and law enforcement agencies of the Middle East,” said Director of Streamline Marketing, organizers of MEPLEX, Nick Webb.
Exhibitors will include manufacturers of anti-terrorist equipment, ballistics, body armour, communications and crowd control equipment, cyber terrorism control, emergency reaction services, forensics, intelligence technology and police equipment. The Middle East's showcase for law enforcement, security, intelligence services, emergency reaction services and policing will also reveal the latest in police and security training services, prison services and equipment, protective equipment, radar, security material, small arms, specialized transport and vehicles, and surveillance equipment. — (menareport.com)
