ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Jan 15, 2016
The Abu Dhabi Police reiterated their unrelenting keenness and commitment to enhance communication with citizens via different communication channels and community councils. This approach embodies the directives of police leadership to further reinforce community participation to help achieve security and safety of society.
According to Abu Dhabi Police, this approach, based on communication with society, is a strategic methodology and a top priority in police work. It includes listening to and discussing the public’s suggestions in order to reach the optimal plans and programs to develop police work according to international best standards that guarantee providing the best services at the Comprehensive Police Stations.
These issues were tackled during the Al Bateen Council, a societal initiative organized by Abu Dhabi Police, represented by the Directorate General of Police Operations, and in coordination with the Department of Community Police and the Law Respect Culture Bureau at the General Secretariat of the Office of H.H Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior. The council discussed the “Role of Comprehensive Police Stations in enhancing social security and stability, and providing security services in areas of jurisdiction.”
The council was attended by Jaber Mohammed Ghanem Al Suwaidi, the General Director of the Crown Prince Court of Abu Dhabi; Major General Omair Muhammad Al Muhairi, Director General of Police Operations at Abu Dhabi Police; Colonel Ahmed Saif bin Zeitoun Al Muhairi, Director of the Capital Police Directorate; and a number of police officers and guests.
Major General Al Muhairi emphasized the Abu Dhabi Police’s keenness and unrelenting efforts to enhance public awareness and understanding that security is a shared responsibility that is not limited to police authorities; and that community members are the key factor to ensure the success of security work. He also stressed the need to enhance efficient communication channels with community members, and noted that the Abu Dhabi Police are prepared to adopt any purposeful ideas and initiatives and to examine the possibility of implementing them, in order to enhance the quality and excellence of the provided services.
The council also discussed the risks and negative effects of begging on society, stressing that such an ill-behavior distorts the civilized image of the country, and exploits the sympathy and spirit of benevolence of the Emirati society. The council also tackled ways to combat this scourge, and the need for concerted efforts and for cooperation of all society segments with the awareness initiatives and campaigns organized by Abu Dhabi Police to combat begging.
Participants interacted with the topics tackled in the council and praised the role played by the Comprehensive Police Stations and the level of services provided to enhance social security and stability in Abu Dhabi. They also expressed appreciation for the positive and effective communication and the commitment to implement programs for the service of society.
