Meeting PwC Middle East’s Policing and Public Safety Lead, Andrew Morley
Andrew Morley has an impressive career that includes his playing a leading role in formulating policing policy for central Government in the United Kingdom; leading the London Criminal Justice Partnership as their Chief Executive; and, more recently, as PwC Middle East’s Policing and Public Safety Lead.
In a wide-ranging interview recorded earlier this year with PolicingTV’s Founder, Bernard Rix, Andrew describes his transition from policymaker to advisor; from public to private sector; and from a focus on the United Kingdom to working across the Gulf and indeed globally.
Andrew examines the challenge of transnational crime, and speaks about the work that, for example, Dubai Police has led in tackling this area; then the related and growing challenge of online crime; and the challenge of maintaining societal trust (and, in some areas, rebuilding trust) in policing. On victims, Andrew speaks movingly about the work on child protection and children’s rights that PwC has undertaken in the Sharjah Emirate in the United Arab Emirates.
Andrew and Bernard’s conversation also covers technology and the Dubai Police “Smart Police Station”; artificial intelligence; drones and “counter drones”; plus the use, management and classification of data.
