The creation of the federation of the United Arab Emirates on the second of December 1971 was a culmination of the people’s aspiration for unity, prosperity, and dignity. From the early days, there was consensus that security is a function that needs to be handled by a federal authority. Hence, the creation of a federal ministry of interior soon after the creation of the Federation was in recognition of its vital importance as an indispensable federal institution.
There has always been consensus on the need for integrating police and security agencies, particularly from His Highness the UAE President and his brothers, Their Highnesses the members of the Supreme Council and rulers of the emirates. That emphasis on having a unified security apparatus nationwide has been instrumental in the ensuing achievements accomplished by the Ministry, which has played a pivotal role in enhancing security and stability throughout the country.
