Emirates Group Security welcomed Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief, Dubai Police at its headquarters on Sunday 26 March 2017.

The visit underlines the close cooperation between Emirates Group Security and Dubai Police in several areas including border enforcement and aviation security.

Major General Al Marri and a senior delegation of officials from Dubai Police were given a tour of the headquarters of Emirates Group Security and its Transguard business division by Dr Abdulla Al Hashimi, Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates Group Security. The visit provided an opportunity for Dr Al Hashimi to highlight Emirates Group Security’s commitment to excellence in operations and the quality of its security education programme. 

The commander-in-chief of Dubai Police later also met with Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline and Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer and  visited the Emirates airline Network Control Centre. Major General Al Marri was briefed on how network operations are managed on a day to day basis and the airline’s capability to respond to critical situations to ensure business continuity.

Dr Abdulla Al Hashimi said: “It is an honour to welcome the Commander-In-Chief of Dubai Police to our facilities. The visit underscores the importance of developing a close working relationship with Dubai Police which helps us develop an integrated approach to aviation security and general crime prevention, allowing us to offer a more secure experience to our passengers.”

Major General Al Marri commended Emirates for its agility and also its handling of the recent directive restricting certain electronic items in aircraft cabins on US flights. He also acknowledged the one stop facility and security management package of Transguard Group which includes security, building management and maintenance as a ‘one of a kind’ concept.

Dubai Police and Emirates Group Security, Major General Al Marri said: “Dubai Police is operating in an increasingly complex landscape and it is absolutely critical to be able to pre-empt and respond quickly to any threats that may arise. Enhanced partnerships with organisations such as Emirates Group Security contribute to our efforts to make Dubai a vibrant, safe and secure city. We will continue to work closely with Emirates Group Security especially in security learning and development, aviation security and general crime prevention initiatives.”
