Officials highlighted the importance of increasing public awareness about the damaging effects of failure to abide by the law of the land. First Lieutenant Abdul Aziz Sarhan of the Naturalisation and Residency Department spoke about the laws that regulate the residence of foreigners in the country.

In Dubai, the Al Bustan Centre hosted many activities including competitions, security exhibition and distribution of pamphlets. Media and cultural activities were staged in three schools and two universities in which security officers and officials took part. An official said the campaign's objective was to increase awareness in society about crime prevention methods and achieving high standards of cooperation between police and the public.
