The number of visitors to the event held in Tangier oct.2 through 6 under the theme “Serving citizens, honor, and responsibility”, reflects the growing interest of Moroccans, foreign tourists and residents in the work of security services, the DGSN said in a statement.
For the DGSN, the event is an “opportunity to interact positively with the expectations of citizens,” and serves as a platform to introduce DGSN’ bodies and to explain the different specializations within Morocco’s security units.
Actually, the event featured 50 exercises and simulations of various security interventions against terrorism and organized crime. It also displayed dog intervention techniques, the work of horsemen’s troops and motorcycle brigades as well as performance of the police music troop.
Besides awareness-raising, the event featured several scientific and academic symposiums related to citizens’ interest in security issues.
On the sidelines of the event, police officers and visitors participated in a blood donation operation, the DGSN said, adding that police officers and agents interested in literature participated in a competition on poetry and prose and that four officers were awarded prizes.
The Open Days are part of Morocco’s security initiative to foster communication, trust, and respect between security forces and citizens.
Last year’s annual Open Days took place in Marrakech and attracted more than 260,000 visitors.
