The Qatar Police Sports Federation organised a programme of events for children of police officers. They were taken on field trips to various public and private organisations. Over the last week, children aged between six and twelve, visited the headquarters of the Internal Security Force (Lekhoya), the Coasts and Borders Security Department, City Center and Al Jazeera Children’s Channel.The children were met by Lieutenant Khalid Mohamed al-Kubaisi at Lekhoya, where they were shown a documentary about the department’s work and were given a tour of vehicles, equipment and also shown police dogs. Children also joined the coastguard on a sea cruise before they visited City Center to participate in an ice-skating session. At Al Jazeera Children’s Channel, they visited a studio and learnt about creating television programmes. The programme will continue with sessions featuring other sports, cultural, recreational and educational courses such as swimming, judo, taekwondo, and other activities.
