Benchmarking Between Umm Al Quwain Police and its Canadian Counterpart

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates-Saturday 20 August 2016 [ AETOS Wire ]

The Organized Crime Section at Umm Al Quwain Police reviewed the best of global practices, as applied by the Canadian Police, regarding the optimum set-up of criminal investigation rooms. The review took place during a meeting organized by the Studies and Research Section at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) Benchmarking Centre at the MoI’s Smart Library Headquarters in Abu Dhabi.

The meeting was attended by Shaun Smith, the Canadian Police Liaison Officer for the Embassy of Canada in the UAE; a number of officers from both the Umm Al Quwain Police and the MoI’s Benchmarking Centre; as well as a group of researchers from the Ministry and the Canadian Police.

Major Marwan Rashid, Chief of the Organized Crime Section at Umm Al Quwain Police, explained that benchmarking against global police authorities who are renowned for their efficiency and developmental achievements in the field of police and security work, contribute to the development of strategic projects and institutional performance. This happens by comparing their performance with the more advanced operations and performance indicators within these organizations. The end goal is to acquire skills that enhance performance standards at the MoI.

Captain Talal Halal Al Ameri, Head of the MoI’s Benchmarking Studies Department, reported that the Canadian Police presented the results of its experience in preparing criminal investigation rooms, focusing particularly on the legal and psychological aspects. He added that they also exchanged their experiences regarding the working practices that they apply in this regard.

Al Ameri emphasized that the Benchmarking Centre is keen to actively participate in achieving the MoI’s strategy by building partnerships with distinguished authorities to exchange information, experiences and performance indicators. He noted that the Centre’s vision is based on becoming a regional and global role model in benchmarking.

Adding further to his comments, he stated that the Centre makes the global tools used in the measurement and development of institutional performance available to both the police and non-police authorities. This is done with a view to supporting the continuous processes of developmental excellence and continued improvements at the Ministry of Interior.

The officers present at the meeting expressed their appreciation of the Canadian Police experience in the preparation of criminal investigation rooms. This included their advanced work practices and their application of the best specifications and standards in the developed countries, as well as the need to take advantage of these elements in order to promote domestic police and security work procedures.
