ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Friday, November 6th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
The Events Security Center of the Abu Dhabi Police Central Operations Directorate General was awarded an international accreditation in the field of fixed work contexts to secure events (coordination and planning), by the Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance.
Colonel Abdullah Ishaq Suleiman, Director of the Center, stressed the importance of developing police work and providing the best security and safety services in securing various events, according to international standards. Such action is necessary especially considering the continuous rise of hosting and establishing sporting, touristic and other global events in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Col. Suleiman pointed out that over six months, a fixed action plan has been developed to secure events and occasions, in order to standardize planning procedures aimed at securing events in Abu Dhabi. The plan included benchmarking to review the best international practices in this field, as well as international visits, such as a visit to the British Police (Scotland Yard) in order to conduct reference comparisons and to exchange expertise with international entities with a longstanding record and expertise in events security. The plan was then submitted to the Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance, which approved it as international standards for events security, on par with the best international practices in this field.
It is worth mentioning that the Security Events Center at Abu Dhabi Police organizes and secures the activities and events in cooperation and coordination with partners from various governmental and quasi-governmental agencies, as well as private companies and sponsors. These actions aim to reflect the world-class level of events held in Abu Dhabi, in a way that befits the civilized image of the UAE, especially since Abu Dhabi has become the preferred destination for foreign entities in charge of organizing events and festivals.
