The visit came under the auspices of an exchange programme aimed at reviewing duties and missions of the two sides. The delegation was received by the deputy director of the Criminal Evidences Department, Lieutenant Colonel Abdulrahman Al Hamadi, who briefed the delegation on the CED's role in police investigations besides regular techniques of crime detection.

Lt.-Colonel Al Hamadi highlighted the importance of the crime scene as a repository of information that enabled policemen to gain valuable leads to the crime. The CED criminal laboratory is in the hands of a highly qualified UAE staff, he added.

All the staffers had honed their skills at various distinguished research foundations and universities, Al Hamadi said. During a tour of the CED lab and its various branches, the armed forces delegation reviewed recent techniques pertaining to DNA analysis and contemporary cases unravelled by the CED.

The head of the delegation, Captain Saeed Al Swaidi hailed the progress made by Abu Dhabi Police with regard to adoption of technology that eliminated the ambiguity factor when dealing with criminals. Commemorative plaques were exchanged by officials from both sides at the end of the visit.
