Dubai Police Forge Ahead with Inclusion Initiatives for People of Determination

Dubai Police are taking significant strides towards becoming a leading force in disability inclusion, with their People of Determination Empowerment Council spearheading a series of impactful initiatives. Major Abdullah Hamad Al Shamsi, the Council's Head, recently highlighted their swift progress in empowering people with disabilities.

"Our vision is for Dubai Police to be recognized as a pioneer in disability-friendliness, " Major Al Shamsi stated. "We aim to be a key reference point for fostering a culture of community responsibility, drawing on the best international and local practices that promote sustainable development. "

The Council has meticulously crafted a five-pronged approach, focusing on key areas:inclusive access, empowerment, full integration, protection, and leadership. These initiatives are designed to translate national policies into tangible action. They ensure that services provided to people of determination are effective and seamlessly integrated into various aspects of daily life. This includes incorporating innovative and sustainable practices into digital services, future job roles, and making physical structures more accessible and inclusive.

This commitment extends beyond physical accessibility. The Council is dedicated to empowering people of determination through targeted programs that enhance their skills and qualifications. This fosters a sense of self-reliance and opens doors to a wider range of employment opportunities within the Dubai Police force.

The emphasis on leadership development is another noteworthy aspect of the Council's strategy. By nurturing the leadership potential of people with disabilities, they are not only empowered but also positioned to become role models and advocates for their peers. This creates a ripple effect, fostering a more inclusive and diverse work environment within the police force.

Major Al Shamsi's comments come on the heels of a recent announcement outlining Dubai's commitment to becoming a global leader in disability inclusion. The emirate has set ambitious goals to create a fully accessible and integrated society, ensuring that people of determination are not only included but actively thrive in all aspects of life.

The Dubai Police's People of Determination Empowerment Council serves as a commendable example for other organizations and institutions. Their multi-faceted approach demonstrates a clear understanding of the various challenges faced by people with disabilities and a strong commitment to creating a more inclusive and empowering environment.
