Background to the Research
At the highest degrees of leading of the Dubai Police, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Commander-in-Chief and his deputy, General Dahai Kalafan ben Tamim, have ever been admired for their modern attack to patrol work, their openness to influences from forces around the universe and their desire to do the Dubai Police one of the best forces worldwide.
During its comparatively short period of being, the Dubai Police Force has undergone dramatic alterations and has grown an exponential rate, as has the Commander-in-Chief ‘s ardor for invention and progressive patterns. The baronial purposes of the Dubai Police have led to legion successes in the accomplishment of of all time higher degrees in the quality of the service. However, the gait of alteration and the increased complexness of operations has presented the departmental caputs with many challenges in endeavoring to supply a quality service whilst carry throughing their primary daily duties.
In malice of winning international acknowledgment, the Commander-in-Chief felt that much could be done to better the service. The quality of public presentation and service was non consistent throughout the force and, because of its rapid growing, demands had been met on an ad hoc footing, taking to overlapping legal powers and duplicate of services.
Early on efforts at consolidation and centralisation of services with a position to bettering efficiency and the quality of service offered to stakeholders, in peculiar to the general populace, met with limited success because of a inclination of leaders and directors to trust excessively to a great extent on traditional methods and confounding expedience with efficiency. Needs were met but HH the Commander-in-Chief felt that the force, while pulling favorable remark worldwide, was non taking advantage of the latest techniques of public presentation sweetening.
Statement of the Problem
H.H. the Commander-in-Chief was impressed by consequences obtained in other forces by the usage of entire quality direction techniques. TQM is a going from traditional direction manners in that its constructs include go throughing duty for action farther down the concatenation of bid, promoting greater liberty of sections and subdivisions while, at the same clip, demanding greater co-operation with other parts of the organisation, handling co-workers as internal clients or stakeholders. All employees are expected to show greater motive and creativeness. ( Robert L. Flood, 1995 ) . Above all, leaders and directors are expected non merely to guarantee their sections operate expeditiously by bossy agencies but to promote all employees to work in an ambiance of co-operation, seeing themselves non merely as members of one section but as lending to the efficaciousness and enhanced repute of the force as a whole.
The job in Dubai is that the constabulary force is a military one, with strong militaristic traditions and a bid construction similar to that of an ground forces.
Having studied and observed entire quality direction in action in other forces across the universe, HH the Commander-in-Chief introduced the construct to the Dubai Police. In the early old ages of its debut in the 1890ss, the force struggled with its execution until in 1998, the General Department of Total Quality was established, followed by the debut of entire quality subdivisions in all general sections. Although great betterments in quality were achieved, consequences were still non wholly satisfactory. There was opposition from the center and lower grades of direction, some cleaving tenaciously to what they considered to be tried and tested operational processs and public presentation indexs and ethos of endeavoring for entire quality on a daily footing did non perforate to staff in general.
Like most public presentation sweetening theories, entire quality direction is most readily applied to commercial or industrial organisations where many partisans believe in the usage of quantitative public presentation indexs. The usage of indexs such as 6SIGMA and SWAT and, more late, the Balanced Scorecard, with the purpose of accomplishing the criterions set by ISO ( the International Organization for Standardisation ) while enabling direction to quantify public presentation and identify failings, can be given to reenforce the thought that the chase of entire quality is chiefly the concern of the Total Quality Department and the quality subdivisions and that accomplishing it is a affair of conforming to criterions and instructions imposed from above with a ensuing restriction of consequences. A common misconception is that an equal degree of quality can be achieved in this manner.
“ Management ‘s function in TQM is important. Top direction ‘s committedness is stressed in the literature, but all excessively frequently this is read as follows. Management must demo committedness at the start, show others that they are committed by making it and go through on quality so that it spills down the administration. Soon direction is liberated of their load. Quality is passed down and direction feel they have done their bitaˆ¦This is non so. In world TQM means a long term, deep engagement of direction in partnership with the work force. ” ( Robert L. Flood, 1995 ) .
This attitude has been recognised by HH the Commander-in-Chief from the beginning and he invariably stresses the ageless nature of the attempts which must be made towards betterments in entire quality.
Reasons for the Current Research
Recently, it has been realized that obstructions to such betterment may lie in the widely differing manners and efficiency of leading found at all degrees within the Dubai Police and that this should be investigated, together with the possible value of a more holistic attack to the consideration of jobs highlighted by the probe.
In 2009, the research was asked by HH the Commander-in-Chief to set about a survey of leading issues in the force, the research to see the undermentioned three subjects:
Equally good as a comprehensive reappraisal of the relevant literature, the research worker sought to place the strengths and failings within the force by, foremost, the assemblage of information from a broad choice of subsidiary officers by statistical agencies and, secondly, by a series of in-depth interviews with leaders and advisers, as described in the subsequent chapter on methodological analysis.
These probes within the force were intended to convey to visible radiation:
any countries of failing
the attitudes of low-level officers towards the leading accomplishments and attitudes of their higher-ups
what leaders and directors considered to be the leading manner within the force with their remarks
what action the said leaders and directors suggested to better entire quality
suggested new attacks to job resolution.

2.1 History, Location, Area and Population
The United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) is located on the eastern side of the Arabian Peninsula. It was once known as the Trucial States or Trucial Coast. From 1820 onwards, Britain established its presence in the part with the sign language of several understandings including a maritime pact, which gave the country its name. ( Sheikh Mohammed, 2009 ; NCM, 2009 ; Al-Ali, 2008 ) .
A half century ago, before the sensing of oil, the state of affairs of the state was really different from the manner things are today ; the United Arab Emirate consisted of simple small towns of hard- working shepherds, fishermen and mariners. Populating in such a rough environment was a existent challenge. Fortunately, the leaders of the UAE had the vision to develop and better a federal authorities that works to harmonize the activities and determinations of the seven emirates ( NCM, 2009 ; MoE, 2007 ) .
Britain announced in 1968 and that it would stop its pact relationships with the seven emirates ( Sheikh Mohammed, 2009 ; NCM, 2009 ; Al-Ali, 2008 )
and on the Second of December 1971, six of the eventual seven sheikdoms so formed the United Arab Emirates. The 7th sheikdom, Ras Al Al-Khaimah, joined the United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) in 1972. The seven emirates are Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Qaiwain, Ras Al-Khaimah and Fujairah. In 1981, the UAE helped establish the Gulf Cooperation Council ( GCC ) Countries, together with five other Gulf states: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Bahrain.
The UAE portion boundary lines with the Arabian Gulf to the North, Saudi Arabia to the South and West, and the Sultanate of Oman to the E. It has a coastline on both the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Gulf and lies South of the strategically of import Strait of Hormuz. The strategic location of the UAE has given the state existent economic advantages, as it lies on the trade paths between Asian and European ( EU ) states ; this has enhanced the popularity of the state, and gives it an advantage over most other similar states ( Sheikh Mohammed, 2009 ; NCM, 2009 ; MoE, 2007 ; Abdulla, 2004 ) .
The land occupied by the United Arab Emirates consists largely of sand dunes and salt flats interspersed with an occasional traditional desert oasis in the South and West of the state. It can be divided into three major countries: coastal, desert and mountain. Figure 1 shows a map of the UAE.
hypertext transfer protocol: //www.reisenett.no/map_collection/Atlas_middle_east/UAE_map.jpg
The entire country of the UAE is around 83,600 square kilometers ( 32,278 square stat mis ) . The emirate of Abu Dhabi is both the principal and the largest of the seven emirates, busying about 86.7 % of the entire land of the Emirates. Dubai is the 2nd largest covering about 5 % of the entire country. Overall, the UAE is considered the 3rd largest state of the Gulf Cooperation Council ( GCC ) states after Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman ( Sheikh Mohammed, 2009 ; MoE, 2007 ) .
As it is shown in Table ( 2.1 ) , the population of the UAE in 2005 was about 4.1 million ( MoE, 2007 ) . The population consists of around 20 per cent native Emiratis whilst a big proportion around ( 80 per cent ) of the people populating in the UAE are workers from other parts of the universe including other Arabs, south-eastern and southern Asians, Europeans and Americans ( Al-Ali, 2008 ; Suliman, 2006 ) ( see Table 2.2 ) . The high per centum of exiles in the UAE is due to the state ‘s unfastened economic policies, fast turning economic system and the development rate following the find of oil ( Suliman, 2006 ) .

Beginning: MoE ( 2007 ) .
2.2 Cultural Features
The UAE is an Arab and Muslim state. The official linguistic communication is Arabic, but English is widely understood and used for communicating across the state. Social life in the UAE is well affected by the values and civilization of Islam, UAE subjects seeing their faith as an built-in portion of day-to-day life, deducing their values and thoughts largely from the instructions of Islam, local civilization, traditions and imposts. Suliman ( 2006: 64 ) summarises the value orientation of the United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) as shown in Table
Table 2.3: Value Orientation of the UAE
General ethical orientation
Personalistic and particularistic
Status and prestige
Very high concern
Very grade of perpendicular ( affinity ) and sidelong ( category ) stratification
Beginning: Suliman ( 2006:64 ) .
Suliman ( 2006:64 ) indicates that five beds of civilization affect work values in the United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) .
Those beds are
Regional: this is the factor that most influences the work values and includes faith, linguistic communication and history ;
National: this is normally shaped by the regional bed, which in bend reflects on human resources, policies and patterns ;
Social category ;
Gender and Organisational civilization.
Suliman ( 2006 ) concluded that the regional and national beds are those that have the greatest influence on work values in the UAE. This is parallel with the findings of Simadi ( 2006 ) who undertook a survey of values among immature grownup Emiratis and found that spiritual and cognitive values were prioritized.
These yearss, states and companies in quickly turning economic systems like the UAE have started puting more in preparation, bettering and developing the accomplishments of their ain national workers because they consider subjects to be an of import plus for the development and betterment of their economic systems. However, the deficit of a local work force in the UAE has led the state to depend to a great extent on multicultural foreign workers including Indian and Pakistani workers. Al-Ali ( 2008 ) argues that the gait of growing continues, but UAE subjects are non employed in their ain state.
To counter this consequence, in the early 1990s, the UAE Council of Ministers developed a new programme called ’emiratisation ‘ to use in both the populace and private sectors ( Al-Ali, 2008 ; Suliman, 2006 ) . Emiratisation seeks to get the better of structural barriers to Emirati employment in administrations, and to turn to societal issues originating from citizens ‘ entry into the labour market ( Al-Ali, 2008 ) . Harmonizing to Shouly ( 1995 ) , the authorities has launched the policy of emiratisation in order to give a larger Numberss of subjects the assurance to travel into the work force and play really of import functions.
The consequence of emiratisation has been more obvious in the populace sector than the private. Some of the private sector endeavors are non reactive to the issue of emiratisation. However, the authorities has enacted Torahs to cover with this issue. A survey conducted by Al-Ali ( 2008 ) in the Fieldss of private sector banking and insurance in the in the UAE has found the barriers to emiratisation included low criterions of instruction and accomplishments among possible employees, unequal English, and a deficiency of trust in the work-readiness of UA subjects among employers. Al-Ali ( 2008 ) points out that the national workers consider that the private sector offers few calling chances and low wage degrees in comparing to the populace sector. In order to accomplish the visions and schemes of the UAE, the private sectors need to reenforce the phenomenon of emiratisation in their administrations in order to go the cardinal spouse in the betterment and development of Human Resources ( HR ) in the State.
However, the supply of foreign workers can non be easy reduced, so the following best option is to seek to better the quality of national workers and do them more competitory in the occupation market. Harmonizing to the UAE Federal Government Strategy in April 2007, companies have to set up commissions and squads to analyze, develop and implement a series of actions designed to back up the emeritisation program and to run into the purpose and aim of holding a qualified UAE work force employed at a assortment of degrees in most sectors. His Highness ( H.H ) Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai said in his address in 2007, when he unveiled the UAE Federal Government Strategy, that one of its cardinal issues would be to concentrate on accomplishing “ sustainable and balanced development, betterment and a high quality of life for all United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) subjects ” ( MoE, 2007 ) .
This attempt puts force per unit area on the UAE system to make larger Numberss of its subjects who are ready, willing, and able to come in the occupation market. Suliman ( 2006 ) states that some UAE administrations have started researching and analyzing human resources development ( HRD ) in different Fieldss, such as employment, labour dealingss, market research and employee development.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the National Human Resources Development ( HRD ) and Employment Authority ( Tanmia ) play a really of import function in fixing locals for employment, preparation and development chances in both the private and public sectors ( Al-Ali, 2008 ; Suliman, 2006 ) . The following are illustrations of Tanmia activities and services, harmonizing to Suliman ( 2006: 72 ) :
Advice and counsel: providing information about the option occupations that are available in the market so that locals can make up one’s mind what calling program to do and how to accomplish their end.
Skills development: assisting subjects to develop the basic accomplishments required to obtain a occupation, such as occupation hunt methods, how to form and develop a CV and the techniques required for occupation interviews.
Researching options: alternatively of immediate employment, locals may be guided to research other chances available, including preparation for a new occupation or even the proviso of farther instruction if required.
Making consciousness: empowering United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) subjects with the tools and information to do educated picks and positive alterations in life, get downing with happening the right occupation, and making consciousness through assorted beginnings, such as personal interviews, employment workshops, careers-library orientation programmes, occupational seminars, work tailing and summer work experience.
Dubai Police ( DP )
In the yesteryear, the UAE was characterised by a societal construction that maintained peace and stableness really easy. However, with independency in 1971 and the rapid addition in the population and their demands, the UAE constabularies have witnessed drastic alterations and advancement in the manner in which they create a secure environment for its citizens, occupants, concern and industry ( Abdulla, 2004 ) . However, the UAE has been celebrated for its stable environment, compared to the instability of other states in the Middle East where far greater attending has to be given to security ( Abdulla, 2004 ) .
The Dubai Police ( DP ) was established in 1956 in Naif station ( the first constabulary station in Dubai metropolis ) . They come under the way of the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, who is in bend the swayer of Dubai. Initially, the DP took the signifier of a simple administration with a modest construction and a little figure of employees. They were responsible for simple policing undertakings, such as guarding the market and assisting the governments in implementing local Torahs ( Dubai constabularies, 2009 ) . As UAE society increased in diverseness and complexness, the demand for effectual security systems became more of import and it was necessary to set up the modern constabulary processs to get by with the developing state of affairs.
Despite the fact that the DP is capable to the Government of Dubai, it is an built-in portion of the UAE Ministry of the Interior. The latter is responsible for the general central office in each of the seven emirates. However, each emirate manages its ain constabulary force and supervises its ain constabulary Stationss. Police Stationss take ailments from the populace, make apprehensions, and frontward all instances to the public prosecuting officer, who in bend transportations these instances to the tribunals ( MoI, 2009 ) .
The DP purposes at excellence in the public presentation of its function in relation to security and stableness, and to the constitution of a sense of trust in the community. Harmonizing to Abdulla ( 2004 ) , these facets support prosperity and economic growing in any state. Consequently, it is believed that administrative excellence is a cardinal portion of security in that it maintains stableness and serves societal public assistance in the state. H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, sets out the general policy of Dubai Police scheme, as follows:
“ The graces and approvals of God are infinite ; we may call a figure of these approvals under one rubric, that is, SECURITY. We, as human existences think that each occupation we perform may convey a certain type of security, such as, personal, emotional, societal, economic, or political security. Without security, life becomes intolerable, and looking frontward, development, quality, excellence, and success are hopeless and worthless. With the grace of God, the efficiency of our policies, the trueness of our leaders, UAE is one of the safest states in the universe, and Dubai is the most unafraid metropolis in the universe. Our strategic planning purposes for safety, security and justness to travel manus in manus with our economic and societal growing waies, in that demand of stabilised safety and security and justness are to be available for state and persons likewise ” ( Dubai constabularies, 2009 ) .
The major undertakings for the DP are as follows: covering with traffic safety ( for illustration, traffic control ) ; covering with day-to-day offense ( for illustration, wrangles and cursing ) ; supplying constabulary services ( for illustration, E-services, educational programmes ) ; covering with offenses of a unsafe nature ( for illustration, slaying, and armed robbery ) ; supplying security ( procuring people and administrations ) ; covering with organized offense ( that is, money laundering, internationally wanted felons ) ; using scientific grounds ( for illustration, fingerprints and DNA ) ; and offense bar methods ( for illustration, counsel, directives, follow-up, statistical projections and periodicals ) ( Dubai constabularies, 2009 ) .
Organizational Structure of Dubai Police
( Table 2.4 )
Briefly Description of Each Department
General Department of Total Quality:
Since 15/12/1998 a cardinal over-arching section called the ‘total quality control section was instigated to organize betterments in managerial pattern at the behest of the commanding officer in head of the Dubai Police. On 07/02/1999 the Commander-in-chief of DP established sub-departments in every general section of the DP including the DP station to be called Quality Assurance and managed by the General Department of Total Quality. The abetment of such a direction construction was non merely the first happening within the UAE but besides alone within the greater Gulf Community Countries and in Arab states worldwide. A feature of quality direction systems is the ability for forces to recommend suggestions they believe will ensue in increased productiveness or quality and for their suggestions to be given serious consideration. A common ailment expressed to the section of entire quality by forces is that their suggestions are non acted on by their section caputs due to miss of involvement. Constantly, many minor alterations suggested and resisted have proven to give substantial benefits when they have finally been put into pattern.
During the comparatively short period of its being the DP has undergone dramatic alterations and has grown at a close exponential rate, fostered by the main commanding officer ‘s ardor for new inventions and progressive patterns. The baronial purposes sought by the DP have achieved legion successes in forcing the boundaries of quality ( Dubai constabularies, 2009 ) ; nevertheless, the gait of alteration and the increased complexness in operations has doubtless presented the section caputs with many challenges in endeavoring to run into the ethos of entire quality whilst transporting out their primary daily duties.
With respect to these challenges, this thesis will research a fresh scrutiny of attacks to TQ modelled on a systems attack which will function as a better instrument for presenting leading and facilitating TQ. In peculiar, would a more originative attack enable farther sweetenings in the realisation of TQ.
General Department of Organisation Protective Security and Emergency:
General Department of Authorities and Installations Security
This section, founded in 1984, is concerned with the following chief undertakings:
The security of international organisations and their offices in Dubai
The security of authorities and commercial edifices, such as markets,

princes, curates and deputations.
General Department of Emergencies
Founded in 1968, this section was foremost located in the Al-Fahaidi District, Bar Dubai, with limited forces. A twelvemonth subsequently it was moved to its present site in Jumaira. The chief undertakings of the section were
Training recruits and developing their accomplishments, every bit good as fixing for exigencies and the control of civil agitation.
Supplying the local constabulary Stationss with specially trained officers to guard organisations and installings as demand arises.
Training new recruits in the Police School affiliated to this section.
However, with the rapid and significant development of Dubai, the Police General Headquarters decided that this last undertaking could be better carried out by a more specialised unit and duty for developing passed to the Police Academy opened in 1987.
The section was subsequently, in 1999, divided and set up in its present signifier, with on-going security demands and concerns being handled by the section mentioned above.
These sections have a immense duty for security and safety throughout the Emirate. The high grade of security provided has contributed in no little step to the overall Renaissance of Dubai and the section is rightly proud of the manner in which it shoulders duty for supplying the community with its indispensable services.
General Department of Criminal Investigation
This section plays a nucleus function as respects other sections and subdivisions involved in condemnable probes. It seeks to stand out, through its extremely trained employees, in bettering security and stableness in the community and circulating a sense of security, therefore back uping the go oning prosperity and economic growing of Dubai. The Department has to be abreast of every technological development in condemnable probes, every bit good as being cognizant of and understanding alterations in societal, economic, political and legal affairs both internally and externally, inventing plans, programs and flexible schemes compatible with those alterations and developments, harmonizing to the undermentioned guidelines:
The Department ‘s Mission Statement

Covering with offenses of a unsafe nature ( slaying, colza, armed robbery, snatch, etc. )
Covering with organized offense ( drugs trafficking, money laundering, internationally wanted felons, etc. )
Social services, such as lost and found, certifications of good behavior, licenses of all sorts, etc.
The usage of scientific grounds ( forensics, fingerprints, paperss, fires, chemical analysis, pieces, etc. )
Using the assistance of individuality acknowledgment methods, ( fingerprints, DNA, condemnable records, etc.
Using offense bar methods ( counsel, orientation, follow-up, statistical projections, periodicals, etc. )
The Aims of the Department:
The aims of the Department can be summarized as follows:
Reducing the offense rate.
Eliminating unsafe offenses where possible.
Developing local and international dealingss in the country of security.
Using scientific and technological progresss in the country of criminology.
Broadening the range of information aggregation.
Continuing the preparation of employees and promoting them to obtain extra makings.
Learning from past errors and non reiterating them.
Pledging to lift to the top degree of public presentation.
General Department of Legal and Disciplinary Inspection
At the beginning of 2009, the former Human Rights Department of the Dubai Police was abolished and by the orders of the General Commander of Dubai Police, His Excellency General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, a new section was set up under the above name.
This new section included six sub-departments, viz. :
The Court of Appeals
Control of Human Trafficking
The office of Quality Assurance.
under the way of Colonel Dr. Mohammad Abdullah Al-Murr. The section has fulfilled outlooks as respects the importance of its maps and the range of its duties and, in malice of the short clip it has been in being, has made applaudable advancement, through the combined attempts of its sub-departments, to the accomplishment of outstanding public presentation in the undertakings it faces.
The section works in highly sensitive countries, with peculiar respect to issues of privateness, and must be cognizant of and handle with understanding all involvements involved. It is peculiarly involved in work such as human personal businesss, settling grudges, corruptness in work environments and all the jobs and hazards that can destabilise the security of society and sabotage its values, ethical motives and sense of justness.
Since the nineteenth century, the international community has recognized the earnestness of human trafficking, so the Control Centre for Human Trafficking has indefatigably striven to battle this offense, the most serious and unsafe misdemeanor of human rights. It works in partnership with all concerned human rights organisations, making all in its power to face and battle this offense and cut down its effects.
The section besides closely monitors the impermanent employment state of affairs in Dubai, guaranting conformity with employment jurisprudence and safeguarding workers ‘ lawful rights.
General Department of Finance:
This section had its beginnings in an accounting office set up at the Naif Police Station in 1961. When the Dubai Police General Headquarters moved from Naif Street, the accounting office moved every bit good and was incorporated into the Department of Financial Affairs created in 1988.
At the present clip the disposal of Financial Management involves six sections and 16 sub-sections which co-operate with the other sections and constabulary Stationss. The fiscal services available are wide-ranging and complex, characterized by their efficiency, flexibleness, velocity and truth. Changeless dedication to bettering the excellence of the service provided achieves a high degree of client satisfaction.
The General Department of Finance prepares budgets, pays wages and providers ‘ histories, collects monies due to and handles the banking demands of the Dubai Police, every bit good as fixing quarterly fiscal studies and the concluding histories at the terminal of each fiscal twelvemonth.
General Department of Forensic Sciences and Criminology:
This section had its beginnings in the Criminal Laboratory Department founded in 1981 as a sub-department of the General Department of Criminal Investigation. Due to the spread outing
scope of condemnable grounds necessitating to be processed and the puting up of other sections covering with the work of covering with condemnable activity, it became a general section in the twelvemonth 2000. The ethos of the section is demonstrated by the slogan “ Science serves Justice ” emblazoned on its flag.
The mission statement of the section can be summarized as follows: –
Exceling in supplying scrutinies and proficient probes via:
Adhering to the regulations and ordinances that regulate quality
Continuing scientific advancement
Speedy and accurate services
Exchanging information, locally and internationally, in order to better public presentation.
In add-on to the above, the Department has strategic aims to which it continues to do steady advancement, such as
The proviso of engineerings required to work out offenses by scientific, modern methods in all relevant Fieldss.
The proviso of preparation in condemnable scientific discipline nationally.
The encouragement of research and scientific surveies to back up the chase of justness.
Publicizing the work of the section.
The creative activity of a on the job environment that motivates employees to work together and portion information efficaciously.
General Department of Airport Security:
Dubai has one of the finest airdromes in the universe. It is besides one of the fastest growing.The Department of Airport Security has, hence, a great duty for the safety, non merely of the riders and the staff employed at that place, but besides for the airdrome installings themselves and the aircraft belonging to many international air hoses, which use it. Nowadays, when everyone concerned with air travel is extremely cognizant of the hazard of terrorist act, security is of the kernel. The Department, hence, strives to use the latest and most advanced methods of guaranting a really high criterion of security.
