Dubai police official receives World Energy Environment Award

DUBAI, 30th October, 2016 (WAM) A Dubai police official has been recognized for his work in protecting Dubai’s environment and natural resources.

The World Energy Forum, based at the United Nations in New York, has presented the World Energy Environment Award to Lt. General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chief of Dubai Police and Public Security, for his pioneering role in environmental protection and conservation, in addition to his numerous programmes aimed at protecting natural resources and marine life.

Lt. General Tamim received the award in his office, presented by Evangeline Taylor, representative of the forum, and in the presence of senior officials.

He thanked the organisers of the award for their role in recognising the work of the agencies and individuals who have contributed to protecting the environment. “What I have done to protect and preserve the environment stems from the inherent values enshrined by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, a man who had persevered in the UAE to create a green oasis and a model in the development and protection of the environment,” Lt. General Tamim said.

Taylor praised the efforts of Dahi Khalfan in protecting the environment, and noted that he was issued this international award in light of reports that show the extent of his significant achievements in the field of environmental protection, development and conservation.
