Abu Dhabi: New tamper proof police badges with a new emblem were launched Monday. Now the police officers have to carry it with them all the time, and if anybody in the community asks them during investigations, they have to show it.
Officials said on Monday that Abu Dhabi Police are replacing the old police emblem and badges with new one. The new logo – similar to FBI’s folded ID card- contains more security features which officials said are tamper proof and can’t be duplicated.
Maj. Gen. Mohammad Khalfan Al Rumaithi, Commander-in-Chief of Abu Dhabi Police, said, “The new police badges can’t be duplicated and it’s fool-proof. From now on, each police officer [including non-officers] has to show his official badge with his police ID card so that everybody would know that he represents the Abu Dhabi Police.”
