The Directorate General of Guards and Special Tasks at Abu Dhabi Police organized a workshop under the theme ‘Analysis of Internal and External Environments of Business” for staff members at the Abu Dhabi Police Officers Club.

In his speech at the opening ceremony, Brigadier Mubarak Abdullah Al Muhairi, Director General of Guards and Special Tasks, reiterated the commitment of the higher leadership to nurture highly qualified police staff and to enhance their efficiency and performance. “We are at this point in time when we need to review and upgrade our strategic plans to cope with the rapid regional and international developments,” he noted.
