This event was created by the board to promote sports among police members across all of the emirates. The board expressed its happiness for the success of the first sports week, which is the first of a seven week-long series throughout the year, organized with each police GHQ. In this regard, the board extended their gratitude to Al Fujairah Police Commander-in-Chief for hosting the first week, and for participating, together with all heads of departments and chiefs of sections in these activities. Their efforts helped to draw more participation from the security zone members, most particularly women.
