The website of the first Major Events Security Conference to be hosted in November this year in Doha has been launched by the Director General of Public Security at the Ministry of Interior (MoI), Staff Major General Saad bin Jassim al-Khulaifi.
The launch event at the headquarters of the MoI was attended by Interpol director at MoI Major General Abdul Aziz Abdullah al-Ansari, Public Relations Department director Brigadier Abdullah Khalifa al-Muftah, Interpol’s Police Services executive director Tim Morris, and Interpol’s Stadia Project general director Captain Falah al-Dousari.
Captain al-Dousari said that the project is the successful result of the co-operation between Qatar and Interpol for a period of 10 years signed in 2012 until 2022. The aim of the Stadia Project is to provide fundamental knowledge of best practices in hosting major sporting events, or major events in general, as well as the mechanism of securing and ways of dealing with them.
He said the newly launched website is specialised for the first conference to secure major events, which will be held in cooperation between Qatar represented by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and Interpol in November.
“This site introduces the Interpol and SC and the objectives of the conference to be held in Qatar. The conference is part of the work plan of the large Stadia project, which includes many teams of experts and events, including workshops, conferences and training programmes.”
“This conference is a historic occasion for both Qatar and Interpol,” said Tim, “I think it will give a very high look to the 2022 World Cup, as the conference activities will increase opportunities for fans from around the world to participate in the most exciting event in the world.”
He added that countries will exchange experiences and expertise and contribute to the security of major events through this conference. He hoped that all Interpol’s 190 member states will participate in the conference and bring representatives from around the world to share experiences.
