King Mohammed VI, proceeded Wednesday at the Riad district in Rabat, the start of construction work of the new headquarters of the Directorate General of National Security (DGSN).
The realization of the new headquarters of the DGSN has mobilized an overall projected budget of 2 billion dirhams. Built on a total area of 20 hectares, the new headquarters of the DGSN will be built according to the Moroccan architectural standards and will constitute a real modern and integrated administrative complex, sheltering all the directorates and central services of the national security, as well as a conference room with a capacity of 1,200 places.
The future headquarters of the DGSN, which will be realized within 5 years, will also include a museum of national security – tracing the history of this great institution – an archive center, a center for sports activities, a center for registration of identity data and printing of national maps, a reserve force accommodation center, a computer center and a parking with a capacity of 1,500 vehicles.
Its modern urban design and Moroccan architectural style meet the requirements and technical characteristics required by sensitive security installations and aesthetic and ecological issues. Similarly, the future headquarters of the DGSN will benefit from improved accessibility due to its location in the Ryad district and its connection to the road and motorway network thanks to the South Rabat ring road.
This structuring project, which respects the international standards in terms of accessibility for people with reduced mobility, aims to group the various central services of the national security in a single building, which meets the highest security standards, incorporates the latest technologies state-of-the-art, accompanies the development and modernization of the police institution, both in human and material resources, and contributes to the consolidation of the Moroccan model of national security.
