Major-General Khamis Matar Al Mazeina, Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police, said 99 per cent of police employees polled agreed with the standard “I feel inspiration and enthusiasm to participate and contribute in realising the vision of Dubai”, compared to 92 per cent of those in other government institutions. Another 97 per cent said they feel the importance of their work, compared to 94 per cent of all other government departments.

He said 96 per cent reported knowing what is expected of them at work, compared to 91 per cent in other institutions, while 93 per cent said they feel part of a team “to achieve a common goal”, compared to 76 per cent elsewhere.
