The Urban Impact: The Security Apparatus & Public Safety
A Syrian’s experience with security
I [Agyead] was stopped by a patrol in Irbid on University Street and placed in the security center for about 12 hours. The police took me there as I had not yet been issued the security identification card carried by Syrian refugees. At that time, I was using my passport as an identification document, and I was not registered as a refugee. Even with this incident, however, I did not feel for a moment that I was a stranger in Irbid and Jerash, and see this as an exception, not a normal event.
