Brigadier Saeed Saif Al Nuaimi, Deputy Director General of Finance and Services at Abu Dhabi Police, stressed that these programs are designed for the benefit of children of the Ministry’s staff members. “These programs aim at urging students to benefit from the different cultural, sports and historical programs and events regularly organized by the Clubs Department at Abu Dhabi Police represented by the Cultural and Social Activities section during school holidays,” he said. Moreover, Brigadier Al Nuaimi underlined that these programs contribute to strengthening their sense of patriotism.

He said: “The Abu Dhabi Police has adopted this approach, which aims at qualifying and training young people in various life skills through a periodic and elaborate program throughout the school year. The program includes a number of cultural, sports, recreational and heritage activities that reinforce their sense of belonging to the homeland and develop their skills. It also boosts their security and cultural awareness, in line with the Abu Dhabi police's strategy to enhance the public's trust and strengthen relationship with community members.

Towards the end of the ceremony that recently took place at the Police Officers Club in Abu Dhabi, the Clubs Department handed over certificates and commemorative gifts to students enrolled in the Friends of the Police program.
