This research examines the importance of developing Talent Management programmes at Abu Dhabi Police Department to develop and build a talent pool as a key human resource. It assesses the relevance of Talent Management and makes recommendations on how to develop an integrated Talent Management programme in the public sector in order to achieve the mission objectives of the government. It seeks to find out the challenges and obstacles that hinder the development of Talent Management within the Abu Dhabi Police Department, UAE. It critically evaluates the current HR practices in terms of attracting, developing, recruiting and retaining employees. While managing and developing employee potential in the UAE has recently been put at the top of the government agenda, this study examines the workforce challenges facing the UAE where foreign manpower is excessively high, to determine what are the strategies and vision of the decision makers regarding Talent Management. This study adopted mixed methods. The rationale for adopting a quantitative and qualitative research approach is based on the purpose of the study, the nature of the problem and research questions. Quantitative data are collected through a questionnaire involving managers at the AD Police Department. This will be supported by qualitative data using semi-structured interviews to provide rich descriptive data to support the quantitative data. The findings of this study have practical implications as they help raise awareness amongst the decision makers within the police force of the need for developing Talent Management capabilities. They will also make a valuable contribution to knowledge through reviewing and expanding the literature on Talent Management programmes, and provide an opportunity for researchers to undertake further studies which could be useful for different organisations wishing to develop Talent Management programmes.
