Police College organised a programme 'Police Officers of Tomorrow' for the first time to give a glimpse in to a Police Officer's life and develop a sense of national identity.  

Held at the Police College in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education for primary school students, the programme, which is held under the slogan "Today’s generation ... Tomorrow's Officers ... Leaders of the Future", was well received by parents and students. As a result, registration for Qatari students from the age of 10 to 11 years to join the programme has been extended. The course, in which the community policing and juvenile police departments are participating, started on June 23.

The course aims to consolidate the original Qatari Arab Islamic values, promote national values, establish national identity among young people and contribute to the service of society through developing leadership skills, enhancing students' confidence and training them on a range of sports, policing, military and educational skills. Participants will learn a range of skills related to public safety and proper behaviour when accidents occur, including how to take action in cases of fire and injury. At the end of the programme, the winners from each group will be evaluated according to performance. The military uniform was handed over to the participants in preparation for the start of the course on June 21.

Maj Fahad Saeed Al-Subaie, Director of the Training Department at the Police College, pointed out that the this programme was a real reflection of the community partnership assumed by the College with all state institutions to raise the children of the country properly and prepare them to be good citizens and beneficial to their homeland. He noted that the idea started from the participation of students with the Police College in the celebrations of the Qatar National Day at Darb Al-Sai in the past years. He asked parents to develop the participation to benefit their children and utilize leisure time in the summer vacation better.
