The signing of the agreement further cements the longstanding partnership between the two organisations, and is set to broaden the scale and scope of future collaboration.


The MoU was signed by Dr Abdulla Al Hashimi, divisional senior vice president Emirates Group Security and chief executive officer Transguard Group and Major General Khalifa Ibrahim Al Saleis, chief executive officer of SIRA.


Al Hashimi said: "The agreement formalised between SIRA and Emirates Group Security expands efforts to facilitate additional opportunities for collaboration and help meet SIRA's strategic objectives to contribute to a safer and secure home front. Collaboration in security has never been more important, especially in the current climate with the unprecedented operational demands it presents. We need to think globally and act locally. Investing in human capital training and education is essential to equip the workforce and advance our abilities to rise to the occasion to meet new challenges."


Al Saleis added: "Working alongside Emirates Group Security allows SIRA to build its capabilities, professional accreditations and standards, as well as advance constructive dialogue, especially in the realm of security education and learning and development. A close working relationship is vital for effective management when it comes to matters of national security in the UAE, as it continues to be on the forefront in security education and training globally."
