Welcoming address of the patron
Ladies and Gentlemen, trade fair visitors,
The security services in Germany and Europe are facing huge challenges. We only need to think of the terror attacks that have occurred in recent times or the criminal phenomena of cybercrime and burglary of private homes. In Bavaria, we are combatting these ever-growing demands with strong security services – because guaranteeing internal security is one of the state’s most important tasks. In addition to the police, there are many other organizations that make major contributions to our internal security, and they all have one thing in common: Modern equipment of a high technological standard is required to do a professional job.
As Bavarian Minister of the Interior, I am therefore assuring you that providing our security services with state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology is extremely important to me. Aspects I am focusing on in particular include further improving protective equipment, optimizing guns and acquiring additional armoured vehicles for our special units. We are also continuing to forge ahead with digitalizing the resources of the Bavarian State Police throughout the state. As a result, I am delighted that Enforce Tac is a high-quality trade fair dedicated to this area and that it is once again being held at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg for what will already be the seventh time.
The wide range of products on display will include the latest developments in guns and ammunition for official agencies, optics and optronics, communication, vehicles, resources and training opportunities. As in previous years, the European Police Trainer Conference is taking place parallel to Enforce Tac this year.
As the patron of the event, I am sure that Enforce Tac will once again be a good platform for exhibitors and trade visitors to share experiences and information. I hope Enforce Tac is a great success and provides valuable impetus for even more security in our state.
I wish every visitor an interesting stay here in Nuremberg with plenty of profitable discoveries!
