DUBAI // Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, the Ruler of Dubai and Prime Minister of the UAE, and other dignitaries attended the graduation ceremony for Dubai Police Academy's 18th batch of officers yesterday.

Sheikh Mohammed inspected the newly minted officers at the academy in Al Sufouh. The 2010 graduating class included 11 master's degree graduates, one of them a woman.
