“The Academy from the dream to the prosperous reality and bright future”

Since structuring the Palestinian National Authority, our main concern has been to build the State’s institutions stemming from our deep beliefs that the state mainly depends on strong and effective institutions to face the obstacles and difficulties. Hence, the security institution was our priority since we are conscious that security is the main core of development and progress. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a security institution responsible for qualifying and training staff and personnel at the security institutions, as well as absorbing the young desiring to join the various security institutions.

Our limited capacities have never prohibited us, but we worked hard depending on our struggle and dream of building our independent State of Palestine which we scarify our souls and blood for. We had another dream of establishing the Palestinian Academy for Security Sciences.

Since the beginning, the support of our late president Yasser Arafat- the symbol of our struggle- had a significant impact on our determination and resolve and led us forward. On his footsteps, His Excellency Mahmoud Abbas continued supporting us. We highly appreciate his efforts as well as the Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

We look forward to Arab and international partnership and cooperation programs contributing in developing the academic and professional level of our associates. We also depend on our own source and the local community supports whether on institutions or individual level especially the institutions of the civilian community.

We use all our power to establish an effective security institution based on professional and advanced basis and controlled by law. Our symbol is justice and we hit anyone threatening the country’s security and stability with an iron fist. On the other hand, we raise the hand of help for our citizens and contribute in the building process.

We commenced, and will continue for Palestine sake in God’s will.
