The gathering is being held in partnership with the Arab Administrative Development Organisation, an arm of the Arab League.

"The forum aims to clarify the basic concepts of the quality of education in Arab police colleges," Maj Gen al Hudaidi said. "It will also enhance the Sharjah police academy's position among Arab police colleges."

The forum will include the best minds in Arab security presenting and discussions on major issues in that area, said Col Salem Jarwan al Naqbi, the police academy's director general.
