IALG Seminars 2019 – 2020/21

Sydney, New York, The Netherlands

The 14th IALG group started their work in November 2019 in Sydney, Australia. After the second seminar in New York City, USA, preparations for the third and final seminar unfortunately came to a halt because of the impact of COVID-19 and the uncertainty about the future. To ensure that the excellent work this group has done over the past months is not lost, the final IALG seminar and the Pearls in Policing conference have been postponed to June 2021. It is our aim to organise the final IALG seminar and the Pearls conference in its ‘original’ form, so the IALG can complete their learning journey together and present their work to the police chiefs in person.

The first IALG seminar was hosted by the New South Wales Police Force (NSW) and Australian Federal Police (AFP) in Sydney, Australia. The second seminar was hosted by the New York Police Department (NYPD) in New York City, USA. The final IALG seminar will be hosted by The Netherlands Police and The Royal Netherlands Marechaussee in The Hague, The Netherlands in June 2021.

 

During last year’s Pearls in Policing conference in New York City, USA, the following assignment has been formulated for the 2019 – 2020/21 IALG group: In order to be relevant and adaptive in response to an increasingly changing environment, police agencies must focus on the future and identify a strategy that will move their organizations forward. As part of that process, it is critical that police organizations focus on how to transform the police workforce of the future. Globally there are many changes that will impact the nature of policing and there will be a need to match the workforce of the future with the challenges that lay ahead of us.  The challenges will include the introduction of new forms of crime, climate change and polarization related to inequality, poverty and economic instability – all of which will have an impact on the safety, security and well-being of our communities. In addition, police services will see the exponential development of disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence and biometrics. These global changes will require a police workforce enabled by visionary leadership, enhanced training, new forms of attracting expertise and the ability to adapt continuously. Notwithstanding the anticipated changes in police culture, will the values at the heart of policing endure?  

 

Assignment giver: Mr. Grant Stevens, Commissioner of the South Australia Police
