As part of its efforts to spread awareness among all community members and in particular students of the UAE, the Community Police Department of the Sharjah Police General Directorate organised a lecture on cybercrimes to raise awareness of students and parents of Fatima Al Zahra Primary and Secondary School For Girls.

The lecture was organised with the collaboration of the Parents and Students Council of Sharjah Education Council.

The lecture was given by Sergeant Rajaa Faisal, who presented a number of awareness-raising topics, such as video games that are of great interest to students and children, and the behaviour of students towards social media including all its pros and cons.

A detailed illustration of cybercrimes laws was also presented at the lecture.

Among the attendees were Captain Alia Al Harmoudi, Director of the Community Awareness Section of Sharjah Police, Badriya Al Muaini, Vice President of Sharjah Parents and Students Council, Moza Khalifa, and Houria Al Hajri from the Council.

The lecture is part of the ongoing awareness-raising lectures organised by the Community Police Department to fight all negative impact behaviours. During previous organised lectures, negative social impact of electronic cigarettes were explained to students of Al Shahba School for Basic Education.

However, the parents and students expressed their thanks and appreciation to the Sharjah Police General Directorate for the major role they play in raising awareness of all segments of the society in the UAE.  They finally praised the content of the given lecture that had a positive impact on each one of them.
