The Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters, represented by the Clubs Department, concluded the ‘Friends of the Police’ Program for children of officers, non-commissioned officers, and civilians working at Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters. A total of 120 officers’ children took part in the program, which was organized during the first semester vacation of the year 2014-2015 at Abu Dhabi Police Officers’ Club.
The Clubs Department distributed certificates and commemoratives gifts to the ‘friends of the police’ participants during the two separate ceremonies recently held at the Police Officers Club in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
In his address on the occasion, Colonel Aref Saif Al Shamesi, Head of Clubs Department, stressed the importance of the program in promoting patriotism in young people’s spirit, enabling them to invest their leisure time with purposeful and beneficial activities, empowering them with skills and developing their talents, in a bid to encourage them to avoid bad and objectionable behaviors.
Colonel Al Shamesi said, “The Abu Dhabi Police has adopted this approach in an effort to qualify and train young generations and provide them with skills that would benefit them in their future life, through a regular and elaborate program throughout the school year. The programs include a wide variety of sports, cultural, recreational and heritage activities that contribute to ingraining the spirit of belonging to the homeland, developing their skills and boosting their security and culture awareness. This falls in line with the strategy of the Abu Dhabi Police in strengthening public confidence and reinforcing its relationship with the community.”
The closing ceremony, which took place in Al Ain, was attended by Colonel Hareb Khamis Al Khaili, Deputy Head of the Clubs Department, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the ‘Friends of the Police’ Program; and Colonel Mohammed Suhail Al Rashidi, Deputy Director of the Al Ain Police Directorate. During the ceremony, participants in the program were honored; attendees screened a documentary film showcasing the various visits and activities carried out as a part of the program, which contribute to strengthening patriotism in young people.
