Milipol Asia-Pacific, the region’s leading international event for homeland security, returns for its 8th edition

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - February 13,
2019 - Milipol Asia-Pacific
2019 returns to the Sands Expo and Convention Centre from the 2nd to
4th April. Jointly supported by the Ministry of Home Affairs
Singapore and the Ministry of Interior of France, this year's show will be the
largest show-to-date with over 350 exhibitors and nine National Pavilions
across 40 countries.


The global homeland security threat is
real and imminent. As part of this year's objective to showcase; and create
public awareness and outreach, Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 will be organising a special
three day conference to gather leading experts, professionals and academia on
this dynamic subject. The topics include overviews of the current regional
terrorist threat landscape, transnational crime such as the war-on-drugs, and
how international agencies can collaborate together with the increasing use of new
technology and innovation to counter and combat crimes.


Ultimately, a strong and robust security consciousness
is critical in the fight against terror threats. From authentication and enhanced
access control; to the latest on cutting-edge surveillance and video analytics;
the application of Information Technology and data protection in public and
private sectors; weapon systems, drones and the use of robotics as well as innovative
anti-terrorism measures and counter-measures, Milipol Asia-Pacific 2019 serves
as the established platform to engage and to promote cooperation across diverse
stakeholders.
