Rabat – The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) hopes to build relations between police and the public for “more combat against criminality.”
DGSN issued a statement today, informing citizens about their strategy “of proximity, communication and interaction” to reinforce the public’s confidence in Morocco’s security organs.
The strategy aims to ensure security and protection for the public.
The statement added that the strategy relies on a participatory approach based on “better governance and adaption to the real needs of the public in terms of security, opening up to the citizens and consolidating a relationship with them.”
DGSN’s Open days event, which began today in Marrakech, falls within the framework of the national security strategy to inform the public of security units’ missions. The event is also intended to ensure a sense of communication between the public and the national police.
The first open days event took place in September 2017 in Casablanca. It received 80,000 visitors in three days.
According to the statement, DGSN has started creating a police security structure dedicated to communications. The facility will have some 20 cells in constant interaction with the media.
Another initiative touted by the statement is the revitalization of the hotline (19) with the view to “respond quickly to citizens’ expectations to improve speed of police intervention.”
DGSN, according to the statement, wants to preserve “bonds of trust with citizens.”
Attendees can get information about the event’s programs from brochures and posters on site or the mobile application “JPO Police.”
