“The Training Institute has a number of strategic goals, which all lead to optimizing the utilization of the human resources at the Punitive and Correctional Establishments after developing their skills and competencies,” said Brigadier Mohammed Saif Al Zaabi. “This is made possible through highly specialized courses for all those who deal with criminals including officers, non-commissioned officers, civilians or technicians. The successful training course is based on achieving the integration between theory and application, enabling the trainees to go on field visits to the buildings and yards of the punitive establishments.”
Brigadier Al Zaabi stressed that the training institute shares an active role in the success of the specialized training initiative dealing with convicts and detainees, and works towards continuously applying this initiative. He said that the management of the institute have contributed and influenced the courses through the application of the initiative, and have follow-up and communicated with the sections and support associates to encourage the staff. The management also worked on reassigning the staff in order not to disturb the workflow and tasks of the sections, and additionally worked on the developments and improvements to course content based on the results of the evaluation and questionnaires for each session.
Colonel Saad Mohamed Saad, Director of the Training Institute at the Punitive and Correctional Establishments at the Abu Dhabi Police, said that the institute specialized in providing diverse training services, with contemporary visions and sophisticated scientific methods. “This will help hone the skills of the staff and provide them with the theoretical knowledge and practical applications to promote and develop their competencies in their field,” he said.
