The Ministry of Interior launched a media campaign under the slogan “My job is a trust” across all government and private sectors. The campaign aims to enhance positive professional values in society, notably preserving public money; refraining from making illicit gains from the job; avoiding abuse of position or power for personal gains; not favoring someone or an organization at the expense of others; and applying rules and legislations without slackness. The campaign is designed to emphasize the role of members of the public in cooperating with the relevant police sectors to report any incorrect behaviors that may have a detrimental effect on society.
Lt. Colonel Matar Mu’ded Al Muhairi, Head of the Anti-Corruption Department at Abu Dhabi Police, said that the UAE community has been able to promote integrity and transparency, which contributed to upgrading work processes to the highest levels, and allowed the UAE to compete with its counterparts in the various economic, social and policing development fields.
He said: “The UAE government has established the appropriate mechanisms to curb and prevent any offenses that might undermine public office, in order to preserve the safety and integrity of the administrative body and the public interest. These mechanisms are also designed to maintain an ethical work environment, which upholds integrity, transparency, efficiency and equal opportunities; an environment that recognizes innovators and honest staff members and elevates them to the highest ranks.”
Lt. Colonel Al Muhairi also stressed the importance of concerted efforts and cooperation of members of the public to maintain and reinforce this civilized aspect of our community by communicating with the “Aman” Service. “This service allows the public to report any crime or suspicion, or to submit any information that would serve to reinforce security efforts, by phone, text message or the internet, and provides the highest levels of confidentiality and privacy to community members,” he noted.
