With the bright colours and flowers, you could be forgiven for thinking this was a nursery when, believe it or not, it is a police station.
Parts of Dubai Police Headquarters have been given a makeover in a bid to reduce stress and spread positive energy among officers.
The new office houses halls, meeting rooms and a cafeteria for police officers who work long hours to rest and recoup their energy.
Positive expressions have been posted on the walls to inspire staff, among them quotes from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.
One reads: “Positive energy gives you a beautiful life outlook and provides you with motivation and the ambition you need to succeed.”
The walls are designed with concepts in mind, such as leadership, energy, success, happiness, honesty and confidence.
The conference hall at the financial control department has also been turned into a colorful park.
Col Mohammed Al Mulla, director of total quality at Dubai Police, said: “Lots of changes have taken place at Dubai Police Headquarters to create a more positive work environment that encourages police members to be happy while working.”
He gave the example of a tourist who mistook the police station in Al Muraqabat for a hotel as he walked through the doors as confirmation that the plan was working.
With the design changes, officials said on Tuesday that police officers feel happy and relaxed, while members of the public visiting do not feel intimidated and can be calm while dealing with officers.
