MoI Councils Discuss Community Security through Cooperation
The Ministry of Interior organized three separate councils in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, to discuss ‘community security through cooperation’. The councils, hosted respectively by Mohammad Ahmed Mahmoud Al Bloushi, Mohammed Bin Naif Al Ameri, and Mohammad Bakhit Al Ketbi, called for promoting the sense of security among individuals, through intensive awareness campaigns to preserve security and stability.
The three councils are part of the awareness councils organized by the Law Respect Culture Bureau, in cooperation with the Security Media Department, the General Directorate of Security Support at the General Secretariat of the Office of HH Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior. The councils also tackled the valuable role of the Community Police in spreading social awareness, as well as the Comprehensive Police Stations, their services, and their role in promoting the community’s security and stability.
The councils highlighted the positive interaction of community members in reporting crimes, whereas the policing system requires concerted efforts between the competent authorities and members of the public, who are active participants in the process of achieving security and safety. The Ministry of Interior’s councils also discussed several topics, regarding cyber crimes, house maids, and the problem of begging that increases during the holy month of Ramadan.
The councils reiterated the importance of reinforcing the role of the media, and educating community members by raising the culture of reporting crimes and other negative phenomena, which may threaten the society’s security and stability. This approach stems from the firm belief in the media’s significant impact on the different community segments and age groups, including citizens and residents of various nationalities.
