His Excellency Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri said that the signing of the Dubai Police Employee Happiness programme, known as ‘Esaad’ is a reflection of the ‘Saada’ initiative, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to promote the happiness of Dubai Police employees.
