“As per the directives of Dubai Police Commander-in-Chief, Maj Gen Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, to create more positive and happy vibes, we came up with the idea of drawing a gigantic smile face on the top of Al Muraqqabat police Station,” said the director of the station, Brig Ali Ghanim.
“The smiley face can be seen by passengers in helicopters and planes, which will promote the power of positivity and happiness among them. Dubai is a city the welcomes everyone. It is the city of happiness, hope and forgiveness,” he said.
Dubai aims to become the world’s happiest city by 2021 and Brig Ghanim says police will have a large part to play in achieving that goal.
“Our plan to achieve this target by enhancing security, resident’s trust in police, and pleasing the public through providing several services,” he said.
