DOHA: The proposed Police College in Qatar will be built at a cost of QR1.5bn and will have advanced facilities, a senior official has said.
The Ministry of Interior on Wednesday signed an agreement with an international consulting company to develop the design for the college and oversee its construction.
Brig Engineer Abdul Aziz Abdullah Al Ansari, who signed the agreement on behalf of the ministry, said the college will function at the Police Training Institute of the ministry for the first three years until the new building is ready, Al Sharq reported yesterday.
The design of the building has been prepared after a detailed study of similar colleges in other countries.
The college will be built on an area of over 900,000 square metres.
It will have all modern facilities, including offices, libraries, large convention halls, drill halls, shooting ground, horse track and sports complex, among others.
The college will offer four-year bachelor’s degree in law and police science and will have a capacity of 100 to 130 students.
The design will be ready by the middle of this year and the construction contract is expected to be awarded by the year-end, the official added.
