COVID-19 Response and Effect: Preparing for a Second Wave

This conference workshop presentation, featuring a distinguished international panel, discusses lessons learned from policing responses to the global pandemic and provides planning insights as agencies big and small prepare for the next phase. Never before have police agencies; international, national, and local, faced the same security challenge at the same time. Equally, police everywhere now anticipate a so-called '2nd Wave' of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Luljeta Mehmeti-Quigley

Major, Kosovo National Police

Major Luljeta Mehmeti-Quigley is the Chief of Staff to the General Director of the Kosovo Police. Beginning her career with the newly formed Kosovo Police Service in January 2000, she soon made the headlines by becoming the first policewoman to be promoted in the history of Kosovo. While holding key positions as the Deputy Chief of Kosovo Police Security Services Division and the Deputy Head of KPS Civilian Personnel she also hosted a live Europewide television show on Radio Television Kosova, focused on unsolved crimes, called Dosja e Krimit. Her public speaking skills made her the ideal Master of Ceremonies for many public police events and ceremonies. Marrying in 2003, she took a ten year career break in the United Kingdom to raise her two children, before re-joining the Kosovo Police in 2014 as the Chief of Career Development and Evaluation of Performance, having defended her former rank before a selection commission. Luljeta again became a public figure on promotion to the Deputy Head of Media and Spokesperson. Recognised for her strong stance on gender and policewomen, she led several key projects including Gender Equality and Diversity in the Kosovo Police and Women in Security. The latter produced a documentary that was televised on mainstream Kosovo television, as well as live in Albania and North Macedonia, whilst also promoting the Kosovo Police Association of Women. When not being a Police Officer and representing her service, Luljeta can be found creating delicious meals at home, reading, and taking long walks across the world with her family.
