More than 14,000 people would be required to colour the portrait in order to make it to the it to Guinness World Records.

“The participation of the College at Darb El Saai will include three activities and the highlight is “ The dignity image” of Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and to enter the Guinness World Records, the highest number of residents should colour it,” Major Fahad Saeed Al Sobaie, Director of Training Department at the Police College, said at a press conference yesterday at the Officers’ Club of the General Directorate of Civil Defence.

“To make colouring easy, the image will be divided into parts so that it could be coloured simultaneously by more and more people. The portrait would then be recollected and presented as a gift to H H the Emir from the people as an expression of loyalty. The colouring activity will be held from December 9 to 16 at Darb El Saai. The participants will have to ensure registration for taking part in the event,” Al Sobaie added.

“It is the second time that Police College is participating in the National Day Celebration. Apart from Darb Al Saai, Police College will also participate in the military parade on December 18,” he noted.

Other activities of Police College in Darb El Saai include “Serving the nation” which will receive 60 students daily. Students aged from 9 to 12 years from 14 schools will experience how students live and get training in the Police College. They will also attend lectures about the importance of time, love for the nation, discipline and commitment.
