ABU DHABI, -- A No. 1 membership under the 'We Are All Police" initiative was awarded to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, in the presence of H.H. Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council.

Sheikh Hazza has also become Member No. 2 of the initiative, launched by Abu Dhabi Police last month to promote happiness and ensure safety, with the aim to make Abu Dhabi the safest city in the world.

The membership cards were presented to Sheikh Mohamed and Sheikh Hazza by Major General Mohammed Khalfan Al Rumaithi, Commander-In-Chief of Abu Dhabi Police in the presence of many senior police officers at the Crown Prince's Court of Abu Dhabi.

"All the community members are active contributors to highlighting the cultural values through cohesion with our national institutions and societal initiatives," Sheikh Mohamed said, speaking on the occasion.

The provision of security and safety requirements strengthens the protection mechanisms of society through shared responsibility from all parties and individuals to create a social communication culture that safeguards the security and stability, Sheikh Mohamed said.

"Amid the security challenges and availability of human and material resources to deal with them, there is a need for concerted efforts through effective participation by all individuals and institutions to prevent illegal activities and practices in a timely manner," he said.

Sheikh Hazza praised the initiative, calling on members of the community to participate.

"'We Are All Police', is an innovative initiative that we must all contribute to support," he said, citing that Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, bears the honour of being the first member of the initiative.

The initiative instils the approaches of the founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on enhancing the values of peaceful co-existence and tolerance among the members of society.
