The programs included in the initiative benefit both the youth and their families as it aims to enable the juveniles to assume both a positive and vital role in the community.
Colonel Mohammed Al Hosani, Head of the Department, stressed that the initiative launched by the Juveniles Care Center at the Abu Dhabi Police features a number of training programs organized by specialists, social workers, and psychologists. The programs include training to stimulate the creative thinking skills of the juvenile delinquents and encourage them to utilize collective thinking to generate creative ideas. Additionally, the programs include courses on proper etiquette; first aid; mock evacuation and rescue drills; and a number of religious, sport, heritage, health, and cultural activities and events.
