A conference of the highest-ranking Police Officials of South Asia and several other foreign Police Chiefs, as well as regional and international Scholars/Experts was organised jointly by the National Police Commission, the Regional Centre for Strategic Studies and the Sri Lanka Police, in collaboration with the United Nations, coinciding with the 150th Anniversary of the Sri Lanka Police. It was hoped that this parley would pave way for a continued regional platform for the highest-ranking Police officials and scholars working on security sector reforms.  

Themes discussed included Oversight, Governance and Accountability; Democratic Policing; Community Policing; Technology and Policing; Policing, Gender and Child Protection; National, Subnational and Human Security; Non-traditional Security: Environment, Trafficking and Border Futures and Future Policing: The Way Forward.
