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.

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.”

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.
