AMMAN — His Majesty King Abdullah, the Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF), on Monday inaugurated new buildings and facilities of the Gendarmerie Forces’ northern command in Irbid, according to a Royal Court statement.

His Majesty was received by Gendarmerie Department Director Maj. Gen. Hussein Hawatmeh and other high-ranking officers. 

The Supreme Commander toured the new buildings which include training fields, operation rooms, a mosque, a gymnasium and a support service facility.

His Majesty discussed security and organisational issues related to the Gendarmerie Forces with Maj. Gen. Hussein Hawatmeh.

The King was briefed on the modernisation and development plans of the Gendarmerie Forces.

The Supreme Commander observed a personnel training, and checked on the physical and operational preparedness of the Gendarmerie Forces, which have the ability to respond to common and urgent security incidents at record speed and high efficiency, the statement said.

His Majesty praised the advanced level of the Gendarmerie Forces in terms of preparation, training and arming, and he expressed his confidence and pride in the gendarmerie personnel’s  skills and morale.

The opening of these buildings is part of the 2015-2020 Gendarmerie Forces’ strategy to keep up with urban development, improve the performance of gendarmes in the field and enable them to carry out their duties in a framework of decentralisation as well as ensuring effective security coverage to all residential areas and economic and tourist facilities across Jordan.
