Webinar: Drones, Drugs and Smuggling

Thursday 14th October
9am EST / 2pm UK / 3pm CET

Drone interceptions along borders are now almost routine. But how many go undetected? They are across the border in seconds and can penetrate well beyond normal border security measures within minutes. Using drones is low risk, it requires agency cross border co-operation to counter it effectively, and rapidly developing drone capability means, increasing amounts of contraband can be carried ever greater distances.

But how many borders include drone detection and mitigation technology along their entirety, including coastlines?
This is a growing threat that urgently needs addressing!

We will discuss what’s being done, what can be done, and what should be done, in our webinar ‘Drones, Drugs and Smuggling’

Speakers include:

  • Dr Sarah Jane Fox, Institute of Policing, School of Justice, Security and Sustainability, Staffordshire University
  • Shaun Ryles MBE, GSDM’s lead in resilience and crisis management
