Nearly 515k Visitors Attended 3rd Edition of DGSN Open Days

About 515,000 people visited the Malabata space in Tangier, which hosted the 3rd edition of the National Police Open Days (JPO), including Moroccans of all ages and foreigners of different nationalities, said a press release by the National Police (DGSN).

This large influx of visitors reflects the growing interest of Moroccans and foreign tourists and residents, as well as the high degree of confidence in the readiness of the security institution as a body responsible for law enforcement, the preservation of general order and the service provided to both citizens and foreign residents, the statement added.

It pointed out that this third edition of the JPOs, organized by DGSN on 2-6 October under the theme "Serving the citizen, honor and responsibility", was an opportunity to interact positively with the expectations of the citizens of this public police service, to assess their aspirations in the security field, as well as to highlight, from within, the national security body, expose the different specializations and security units mobilized to serve the security of the citizen and the country.

This event, with a communication and awareness-raising dimension, the same source added, provided an ideal opportunity for DGSN services to support community policing, enshrine the concept of joint security production and consolidate institutional openness, through the presentation of 50 exercises and simulations of the various security interventions against terrorism, organized crime, in addition to dog intervention techniques, horsemen's troops, motorcycle brigades and the music troop.

It was also an occasion to organize 30 awareness-raising and interaction pavilions and to host seven symposia on scientific and academic topics related to citizens' interest in security issues.

On the sidelines of the event, a blood donation operation was held with the participation of police officers and visitors, with the aim of providing this vital and life-supporting element, the DGSN said.

The JPOs were also marked by a literary competition supervised by an academic jury that awarded prizes to four outstanding police officers of different ranks who excelled in poetry and prose.
