The security committee at the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) on Thursday celebrated the graduation of the attendees of the 2022 World Cup security leadership qualification program (silver level), which lasted for weeks and was attended by 22 officers involved in securing the 2022 World Cup.
The graduation was attended by head of competitive establishments unit Major General Ali Mohamed al-Rashid, head of the rehabilitation and training unit in the SC security committee Major Fahad Saeed al-Subaey, senior manager at Project STADIA Falah Abdulla al-Dosari, University of Southern Mississippi vice president Gordon Cannon and the program lecturers.
Al-Dosari congratulated the graduates for passing the silver level to be international experts after obtaining the international specialized certificate in security and safety of sports events, accredited by Interpol within the project (STADIA), which is one of the pioneering projects, established by Interpol in 2012 with funding from the State of Qatar. Its aim is to serve the countries of the world wishing to host major sporting events.
Al-Dosari said the project has implemented many programs benefiting the organization's 194 Member States to qualify their security personnel through workshops, courses and training programs.
He added graduates receive an international professional certification for safety and security at major international sporting events, with the aim of fostering knowledge and encouraging innovation, to turn training into operational practice for international sporting events.
He added that the knowledge management system within the STADIA project has transformed the work and cooperation mechanism of law enforcement agencies at the level of the State of Qatar, regionally and internationally.
The knowledge management system is the first online platform for the exchange of police and security information for major events, and the creation of a virtual network to exchange information and experiences on security challenges and optimal solutions.
