DUBAI: Over 2,000 visitors, 80 exhibitors and academics, who will present 100 scientific lectures, are expected to grace the 1st edition of the Emirates Forensic Conference and Exhibition which runs from Apr.2-4 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Organised by the Dubai Police together with INDEX Conferences & Exhibition, the conference will run under the theme “Digital Forensics Science.”

In yesterday’s press conference held at the seat of Criminal Investigations Department (CID) at Dubai Police headquarters, the Assistant Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police for CID, Major General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, summarised the objective of the conference.

Al Mansouri said, “It is due to Dubai Police’s keenness to get up-to-speed on the latest discoveries and developments in the field of crime control, and to support the specialised scientific cadres with the latest technology.”

Other objectives of the conference include “applying the best international standards in the CID’s criminal laboratories at its forensic science and criminology facility, which is considered to be one of its kind in the Middle East.”

The press conference was also attended by the Director-General of Dubai Police’s Forensic Science and Criminology Department, Major-General Dr Ahmad Eid Al Mansouri, and his deputy Colonel 1st Expert Ahmad Mattar Al Muhairi.

Also in attendance were the Executive Chairman of Emirates Forensic and Chairman of INDEX Holding, Dr Abdul Salam Al Madani, the Director, Training Research and Development Department in Dubai Police and Head of the Scientific Council, Dr Fouad Ali Tarbah, and the Director of Dubai Police Security Media, Butti Ahmad Bin Darwish Al Falasi.

Dr Ahmad Eid Al Mansouri said the conference will play as a “leverage for Dubai Police’s forensic speciality in the region.”

The prime beneficiaries include the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Interior, Public Prosecutors, courts of law; and university students, who will have an “opportunity to learn about the latest researches and technologies, and to present their research papers.”

DNA GLOBAL FIRST

The event will also highlight the work of the Dubai Police Forensic Evidence Department. Three years ago, Dubai Police’s CID registered a global first in the genetic research when its current Lt Col, Rashid Hamdan Al Ghaferi, PhD in Criminal Genetics – UK, invented a tool that helped separate an alleged sexual offender from any other person who could share his DNA. The invention was a breakthrough technique in criminal matters. It was patented by the University of Lancaster and the Dubai Police.
