With the rise in cybercrime trends, member countries of ASEANAPOL need to consider the importance of Cybercrime law and to amend where necessary in order to develop legislative framework to effectively combat cybercrime domestically and abroad. The Commissioner of Police, Royal Brunei Police Force highlighted the matter at the Closing of the 38th ASEANAPOL Conference yesterday afternoon.
Aside from that, ASEANAPOL Member Countries are encouraged to engage the community through participation in awareness programmes focusing on crimes such as Commercial Crime and Wildlife Crimes. Dato Paduka Seri Haji Mohd Jammy (PRON: JIMI) bin Haji Muhd Shah Al-Islam said this participation aims to create an informed, responsible and responsive society and to further strengthen partnership with public and key private stakeholders.
The conference also agreed for a joint exercise to be organised amongst ASEANAPOL Member Countries to test and operationalize the ASEANAPOL Communication and Coordination Protocol for Crisis Management. Before the closing, a Joint Communique for the 38th ASEANAPOL Conference was signed which incorporated new proposals and adopted resolutions spanning 14 topics of mutual interests. The 39th ASEANAPOL Conference will take place in Vietnam next year.
