Base Camp Adder (Ali Base) Iraq – The Police Chief of Diwaniyah Province, Iraq Reconstruction Management Office Representative Hakim Kawy and Col. Larry McCallister, commander of Gulf Region South District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and cut the ribbon to officially open the 32nd police facility within Diwaniyah Province. Hay Ramadan Police Station is a newly constructed station in a congested, busy residential and market area of city of Diwaniyah. Approximately one-hundred police officers and guests attended the ceremony.

The Police Chief talked about the symbolism of this building for all people in this area because like this construction, Iraq is constructing and building a new nation. He thanked all Americans and especially the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Construction started on the new, $141,000, multi-room police station in early November and was finished this past week. The station has offices and sleeping rooms for the officers, visitation rooms, jails, bathrooms, parking area, perimeter wall, guard tower and emergency generators.

The marbled entrance, landscaped courtyard and brightly painted offices will house officers who fill critical law enforcement roles that provide security and protection for the community residents.

Not only is this the 32 police station within Diwaniyah Province to be constructed, but it is also the final project. This station closes out the police program of the Security and Justice reconstruction sector built by the U.S. Corps of Engineers using Iraqi Relief and Reconstruction Funds.
