Ras Al Khaimah: The Ras Al Khaimah Police Department has granted a wish of seven-year-old Abdullah Hamad Al Kitibi to become a traffic police officer for one day.
The boy, wearing the police uniform carrying the rank of a lieutenant, spent an hour with police officers on the roads to regulate traffic flow. The uniform was designed by boy’s father.
Brigadier Dr Mohammad Saeed Al Humaidi, Director General of the Central Operations Department at Ras Al Khaimah Police said he fulfilled the boy’s wish to become a traffic police officer for a day. Brigadier Al Humaidi said he asked the boy to excel in his studies and graduate from the Police Academy to realise his dream of becoming a police officer.
The boy was told about the work of a traffic police officer and traffic rules and how to deal with vehicles and school buses on the roads.
The boy was given an hour to regulate the traffic on the first day of new academic year.
“This step has been taken to break barriers between children and the policemen and to build trust between them,” Brigadier Al Humaidi said
Abdullah along with police officers visited the Othman Bin Afan school and gave gifts to students as part of the “safety of students" campaign.
