The Dubai Police have recently fulfilled a family's wish to change their child's negative perception of police officers.
Butti Al Falasi, the director of Security Awareness Department at Dubai Police, said the Arab family approached Dubai Police and sought their assistance in familiarising the child with police's role in the society and correcting his misconception of police officers.
"Dubai Police, as per their community happiness strategy, have always been available to attend to the public's needs, spread happiness, and promote a positive image of police officers who stand for fairness and justice," Al Falasi added.
"Dubai Police believe the community is an important key partner in strengthening the security and safety in the emirate," he confirmed.
The director of Security Awareness Department at Dubai Police said they have always been keen to project the true image of police officers in promoting security, safety, and community happiness, through carrying out awareness programmes that target various segments of society, especially the youth.
A specialized team in Security Awareness and Psychological Support headed to the family's house with gifts. They also gifted the child with a tailored police uniform and escorted him on a guided tour through a smart police station (SPS), which left a positive impact on the little child.
For their part, the child's parents expressed their gratitude to Dubai Police for their prompt response. They also expressed their appreciation for the force's important role in ensuring the happiness of society.
