London - Dubai Police's Academy and New Scotland Yard's Crime Academy have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for joint cooperation in training, expertise sharing and capacity building.

Major General Dr. Mohammed Ahmed bin Fahad, Director of Dubai Police's Academy and Timothy Godwin, Acting Deputy Commissioner of London Metropolitan Police, inked the MoU at the New Scotland Yard premises here.

Bin Fahad said the conclusion of the MoU is part of Dubai Police's strategy to boost security cooperation with sisterly and friendly countries in crime prevention and reduction out of their belief that international security, stability and peace will only prevail if international efforts are mobilised, and expertise and knowledge are shared. 'The MoU falls within the Academy's intention to establish an international excellence centre for training of Police and law enforcement personnel in the GCC region," he added.

According to him, the partnership with the UK prominent police academy will advance the Dubai Police Academy's continuous efforts to improve performance and efficiency of police personnel and updating and sharpening their knowledge and skills with the latest security and police techniques.
