ABU DHABI: Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of the graduation for the first batch of female police at an event held at Abu Dhabi University.

During the event, Major General Hammad Ahmed Al Hammadi, Director of the Community Security Sector at Abu Dhabi Police, honoured the first Abu Dhabi female police graduate and other members of the first, second and third batch of female police graduates.

A number of other distinguished former and current female personnel were also honoured for their services.

Addressing the event, which was organised by the Women’s Police Affairs’ Office of Abu Dhabi Police, Al Hammadi reflected on the great importance of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nayhan in providing the foundation for the progress of Emirati women, by recognising and supporting their central role in community life while encouraging women to embrace their creativity in the pursuit of excellence.

Hammadi also paid tribute to the UAE’s visionary leadership for its unwavering support of Emirati women and their pioneering role in the journey of the nation. He noted that guided by the vision of the leaders, women are now at the forefront of the country’s development with many females undertaking leading positions across the community, while the leaders continue to demonstrate an unwavering determination to meet the hopes and aspirations of women in the nation.

The Women’s Police School, Hammadi added, was set up to inspire and prepare women to advance the security of the nation by utilising their unique talents in all aspects of work. The Women’s Police School, he noted, has been critical in preparing females with the academic and physical training required to excel in various spheres of police and security work over the last 40 years.

Major Dr Amnah Al Beloushi, Director of Women’s Police Affairs’ Office in Abu Dhabi Police, said the celebration of Emirati Women’s Day embodies the vision of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation, and also celebrates women’s achievements and efforts in sustainable development.

“Emirati women are natural leaders and possess great capabilities to participate in building a secure community and providing stability across the country. They have been a cornerstone in community life and continue to provide vital skills and capabilities that benefit the nation,” Beloushi said.

Salem Mubarak Al Dhaheri, Executive Director of Community Relations at Abu Dhabi University, also praised the role of women in improving the quality of police work and acknowledged the importance of celebrating the success of women and their role in the country’s development.

He also praised the visionary nature of the founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who paved the way for the future success of Emirati women.

The event opened with a playing of the National Anthem, followed by reciting verses in the Holy Quran. Police patrol cars were displayed and police personnel distributed flowers and vouchers to the audience.

The event was attended by Brigadier Saif Al Kutbi, Director of the Punitive and Correctional Institutions, Colonel Dr Hmoud Saeed Al Afari, Director of the Community Police Department, Salem Mubarak Al Dhaheri, Executive Director of Community Relations at Abu Dhabi University, and a number of police officers, personnel and female staff.
