Law approved by Sheikh Khalifa involves orders, medals and badges of appreciation for the police and related parties.

The President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in his capacity as Ruler of Abu Dhabi, on Thursday issued Law No. 17 of 2020 regarding orders, medals and badges of appreciation for the Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters (GHQ).

The orders, medals and badges of appreciation may be granted to affiliates of Abu Dhabi Police, military officers, and members of the community who have delivered distinguished and outstanding services for Abu Dhabi Police and the community.

Following the law, the orders are to be granted by a decree from the Ruler on the recommendation of the Commander-in-Chief, and upon the approval of the Chairman of the Executive Council.

Orders bestow the highest level of honour and appreciation. Medals and badges of appreciation are granted upon orders of the Commander-in-Chief and upon the recommendation of the Director-General of the Abu Dhabi Police.

The Ruler, or his delegate, will present the orders, whilst the Commander-in-Chief, or his delegate, will present the medals and badges of appreciation.

The Law specifies four types of orders: the Zayed's Order for Excellence in Security (2-layers); Abu Dhabi Police Order (5-layers); the Martyrs' Order (1-layer)' and the Order of Bravery (1-layer).

The Zayed's Order of Excellence in Security is the highest security Order. It may be granted to distinguished affiliates of Abu Dhabi Police GHQ who performed their services with devotion and loyalty and contributed to maintaining security.

The Law provides for 15 Medals: Falcon Medal (4-layers); Security Cooperation Medal (2-layers), Excellence Medal (3-layers); Duty Medal (2-layers); Honour and Honesty Medal (2-layers), Rescue Medal (2-layers); Security Sense Medal (1-layer); Commander Medal (2-layer); Scientific Research Medal (1-layer); Job Excellence Medal (1-layer); Loyalty Medal (2-layers); Community Service Medal (1-layer); Honour Award Medal (1-layer); Innovation and Creativity Medal (1-layer); and External Security Missions Medal (1-layer).

The Law also specifies the financial bonus and monthly gratuity of these orders and medals. The value of the gratuity for the orders and medals will be decided by a resolution of the Executive Council following a proposal from the Commander-in-Chief. This same resolution may also specify the terms and conditions of payment and cessation of the monthly gratuity for the orders and medals provided under this law.
