It has been reported in Expat Forum that the movement is part of a drive to connect the public with the force, after research shows that community policing improves public confidence and trust. The 500 strong team is already diverse, however the aim is to increase this further to represent the full variety of nationalities in Abu Dhabi. Lieutenant Colonel Mubarak Bin Muhairom explains that “the pivotal role for community police is that they are proactive in solving problems.” He also explains that community police are responsible for solving problems with crime and anti-social behaviour but are also required to deal with social problems, broadening their role.

Renowned for their interest in industry news and developments, the team at overseas removal company Interdean were keen to look into the role of community police officers in Abu Dhabi. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.

“It can be difficult to find employment or volunteer work as an expat in a foreign country, so it’s good to hear that Abu Dhabi is welcoming former UK residents to join its community police force. It would appear as though they are seeking individuals who are particularly proactive, with Lt Col Muhairom stating that these people “don’t wait for things to happen before they respond.” Becoming part of an organisation like this is a good way of becoming integrated within the community, meeting other expats and feeling as though you are making a difference to your local area.”
