His Highness Sheikh Mohammed said "UAE has become a model in safety and peace regionally and internationally. Hosting the GCC Police Force reflects such a confidence in its attractive and encouraging environment. We are fully confident hosting the headquarters will boost efforts towards gulf integration, prevalence of law, maintain safety and security to our nations."
