Shurta hutWhile in Jordan, we’ve noticed a new Jordanian invention popping up: “Police Huts,” as they are tagged. These blue, glass-enclosed little stations are positioned such that the police are right in the middle of busy districts making sure security is maintained. So far, I have seen huts in Rabieh, Sweifieh, the 7th Circle and on Gardens Street.

If anyone cares to hear my humble opinion, I say way to go. Jordan is growing and so is the amount of unpleasant occurrings here including theft and harassment. I salute those behind the initiative. It is much needed in this day and time. Here is a little snapshot of the hut in Rabieh on the side of the main neighborhood circle.
