What You Need To Know About The Al-fazaa Police: Guide From A Manpower Company In Qatar

Anyone living in Qatar has presumably come across a black and white car labeled with the word “Al-Fazaa.” Many may be familiar with it and call it the Qatar Police in general. But, Al-Fazaa is actually more than that.

The Rescue Police Department (Al-Fazaa) provides a quick response to ensure social security in the country.

Al-Fazaa is an old Arabic word, which holds meanings like chivalry, magnanimity, and providing help for those who are in need, the reason why the Ministry of Interior (MoI) chose the name as  a substitute for  rescue police.

The department was established as per the Decree of Minister of State for Interior Affairs No.  (13) of 2009, dated on March, 15th, 2009.


• Organization and arrangement of security patrols through all regions in Capital and Al-Rayyan Security Departments’ area of competence, to ensure the security of the community.
