Al Subaie noted that the events also include pavilions displaying latest techniques used by the Ministry of Interior in providing security and humanitarian services to the public, in addition to a model of the Police Museum.

“The College is holding its activities this year under the slogan “Qatar brings us together 2022” and there are many surprises that will be offered by the Police College to the public and the students in Darb Al Saai,” Al Subaie added.

Captain Rashid Ali Al Tamimi, Head of Sports Training Section, said that the school students will have opportunity to participate in various police and military training and self-defense activities which are aimed at developing self-confidence and physical fitness. The main event includes the training for 380 students from primary schools in the country.

The participating students will undergo the basic training that the officer candidate undergoes in the college, such as military parade, military salute, as well as their self-defense skills, by specialised trainers in this field.
