“ There were some very interesting ones that deals with the issue of recruitment of police officers, there were presentations that deal with police officers’ mental health; there were operational effective presentations, intelligence presentations and I partook in many of these different presentations with a view to see how I can look at best practices that are being employed by other police organizations as well as presentations from experts in the respective fields who delivered on different subject matters relevant to policing,” Williams said.
Williams said that there were also exhibitions and organizations that sell equipments.
“For example you would have those persons who are engaged in the whole surveillance camera system, the software that goes with it; persons that deal with the whole issue of crime management system – using different tools and software. We have firearms, we have drones, we have vehicles, we have whatever you could think about in the area of security is here at the conference being advertised,” Williams added.
