New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is organizing the Youth Global Police Leaders Program in India from January 25 to February 2, which aims to build trust between the public and the police as well as as among international police forces in the age of technology.

Up to 59 participants from 44 countries participate in the program with the theme ‘Trust’.

Addressing participants virtually on Friday, Interpol Secretary General Jurgen Stock said Delhi hosts one of the most successful Interpol General Assemblies.

Recalling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s words when he addressed the Interpol General Assembly last year that “crime somewhere is crime everywhere,” Stock said: “The main issue before us is maintaining trust in the criminal investigation process in a digitized world”.

Stock underscored that this brings together two inescapable realities of our time, first, the challenges and opportunities emerging in the crime landscape, coming from the rise of artificial intelligence, big data, and augmented reality, including through disruptions like the Metaverse. Second, the ongoing globalization of criminal activity and the critical need for a collaborative approach to combat it effectively.

He also said that the use of new technologies is always treated with more skepticism when implemented by governments rather than the private sector. Faced with that challenge, as leaders, he said, you need to make sure that the proper protections are in place and that any risks you identify are addressed. A second component of trust, Stock said, is not just designing the right system, but also delivering results. Third, he said, you build trust with the right mindset. The international dimension of crime can be linked to almost any aspect of modern crime.

“Think about drug use, property theft, forced labor, behind many seemingly domestic crimes are regional and global networks that exploit borders to engage in borderless criminal activity. Interpol is a platform for integrating global criminal intelligence into local police. We are here to build bridges between police forces, founded on a common mission to foster global collaboration, which will span distance and time,” he said.

CBI Director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal said that overall this program will provide an overview of the scale and scope of the police system in India and the various innovations and best practices being adopted and will help in capacity building. of future police leadership.

The Interpol Young Global Police Leaders Program (YGPLP) is Interpol’s flagship event for promising young police officers.

The event brings together young police leaders (under 37 years of age) who perform vital tasks in their respective countries and helps them develop an international perspective and understanding. Seeks to empower the next generation of international police leaders through mentoring by experienced officers.
