Captain Khalifa Saeed Al Fleiti who signed his publication titled “National efforts to prevent terrorist attacks on soft targets”, said: “The Minister of Interior’s Scientific Research Award has managed to achieve its objectives, notably encouraging intellectual and innovative individuals and motivating competitiveness among the Ministry of Interior’s staff members for the sake of developing police work. The Award is also designed to help identify scientific and academic skills and potential expertise of staff members, with a view to adopt them and invest them in improving the standards of police work and human sciences, thus enriching the police library with researches and studies”.

For her part, Lieutenant Maryam Mohammed Al Hammadi, who signed her publication titled “Smart services in the UAE” at the Research and Survey Center’s pavilion, expressed her deep appreciation and thanks for the attention dedicated by the police leadership to support the young talented Emirati talents and writers, as they contribute to advancing the ongoing cultural renaissance and progress witnessed by the UAE.

“The award has allowed everyone to contribute their expertise to the progress witnessed by police and security sector in the country. It includes all disciplines and areas that serve police and security work in general, and is different from other similar awards, because it not specifically designed for individuals; it encourages joint efforts on one single research,” she said.

She also expressed her thanks and appreciation for her university professors who taught her the rules of scientific research, as well as all for the supervisors of the award and the Ministry of Interior officials for the efforts exerted to support and encourage scientific research, and for supporting scientific competencies of the ministry’s staff members to enable them to forge ahead for the benefit the police force and society alike.
