Police in UAE Makes Announcements in Filipino

Sharing announcements in Filipino is part of the Abu Dhabi Police’s latest initiative — to communicate effectively with the diverse community in the UAE. Aside from Filipino, they are currently disseminating information in other languages: Arabic, English, Urdu, and French.

More Languages to be Introduced
The Director of the Corporate Reputation Centre at Abu Dhabi Police, Major Ahmed Jumaa Al Kaabi, explained that they seek to spread awareness and education across large segments of the population. He also said that other languages will be introduced in the future.
