On the 3rd & 4th May we held our 44th Annual Conference in Gibraltar. We were made most welcome by His Excellency Lieutenant General Edward Davis CB CBE KStJ the Governor & Commander-In-Chief, The Honourable Fabian Picardo QC MP the Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Her Worship the Mayor of Gibraltar Kaiane Aldorino Lopez, Eddie Yome CPM the Commissioner of the Gibraltar Police and John Rodriguez the Gibraltar Collector of Taxes.
Collectively they made us most welcome, their generosity and support was greatly appreciated by all who attended the conference. The conference theme was ‘Developing a flexible and agile security capability that protects our ports in a changing environment’. There were four sessions covering: Cyber, Impact of changing political landscapes on the borders of Europe, Terrorism and Collaborative working across the EU. Each session had a mix of Strategic and Operational speakers followed by separate tactical workshops serving aviation and maritime interests. Feedback received thus far has been excellent and we are content that this was our best conference yet. We have been building upon our experience and guidance from members and speakers over the years and will continue to do so.
