The Ajman Police received 48 local and international awards for its quality security services. So what kind of achievements have been made by the Ajman Police?
Since 2008, the police department has functioned based on the strategies of the Minister of Interior which focuses on enhancing the skills of staff in various departments such as crime scene, forensics, CID and the traffic department. A Crime Scene Village in Ajman offers training to the staff by British and American experts. The village consists of two villas, two equipment storage facilities and accommodation for trainees. Launched in December 2011 on the directions of Shaikh Saif bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, the village educates the police and medical staff on the importance of preserving evidence.
Officers who underwent training have excelled in investigation of what we call blocked crimes, such as thefts, fires, kidnapping, murder and drugs. The Ajman Police have also focused on increasing the number of personnel and taking care of its staff to provide best services – one of the factors that enable then to gain such prestigious awards.
