On Women’s Day, DGSN paid tribute to its women officers, young and old.
Rabat – The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) celebrated Moroccan police officers and their “major role in serving the national security and safety of citizens.”
Morocco’s DGSN, headed by Abdellatif Hammouchi, organized celebrations and handed out gifts to honor police women today for their dedication to fighting crime and protecting citizens.
DGSN also posted a video online of students at the Royal Institute of Police and policewomen who spoke briefly, in Arabic, French, Tamazight (Berber), and English, about why they chose their field.
The 45-second video featured medical examiners, officers, and professors with DGSN.
“With a passion for law enforcement I’m able to do what I love everyday,” said Majda Lakhder.
“As a doctor with Ph.D. in biology, I chose to become a professor in the field of forensic science,” said Houki Kaoutar.
“I chose this job because I love it and love horse riding!” said Samia El Khayati, a mounted police officer.
A motorbike cop, Nora Koussi said that her job allows her to “prove the role of female motorbike cops.”
