The design has been set according to engineering standards that combine modernity and the spirit of the original Moroccan architecture, taking into account the technical conditions and safety standards required in highly sensitive security buildings.
Within the framework of celebrating the 65th anniversary of establishing the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN), Abdellatif Hammouchi, the Director General of National Security and National Territory Surveillance, supervised yesterday, Sunday, in Casablanca, the inauguration of the new headquarters of the National Brigade for the Judicial Police (BNPJ).
On this occasion, Hammouchi, accompanied by a group of security officials, visited the facilities of the new headquarters, in addition to the National Laboratory for Scientific and Technical Police, the Police Department, Traffic Accidents Service, and the new headquarters of the National Brigade for the Judicial Police, which is located in Roudani St.
The building’s design has been made according to engineering standards that combine modernity and the spirit of the original Moroccan architecture, taking into account the technical conditions and safety standards required in highly sensitive security buildings. It also extends over an area of more than 16 thousand square meters, divided into eight floors, including two underground floors, with a section allocated to each of the offices included in the BNPJ.
In addition to the offices and integrated work spaces, the new structure has been equipped with a set of facilities for security buildings that host criminal investigations, such as security rooms designated for individuals in custody, which have been built and equipped with all means of shelter, protection and common security as required by international conventions, with the allocation of spaces for minors and women, in addition to providing these buildings with a high-tech visual surveillance system operating 24/7, and a health facility equipped with the most advanced technology to deal with emergency cases.
Moreover, the building has a set of equipment and structures for reception and guidance, rooms for identifying suspects, in addition to rooms for contacting lawyers and holding conferences and meetings, parking garages for employees, in addition to facilities designated for people with special needs and those with limited mobility, a space for prayer and a restaurant.
It is noteworthy that the inauguration of the new headquarters of the BNPJ comes within a context marked by the growing challenges associated with combating crime both nationally and internationally, which prompts further efforts in the field of strengthening logistical, material and human resources available to security authorities in general, and those specialized in the field of judicial police in particular, as well as the need to develop methods of scientific and academic training to acquire more experience in the areas of emerging and modern crimes.
