More than nine in 10 Dubai residents feel secure, according a new study by the emirate’s police force.
The report, conducted by Dubai Police’s Public Opinion Centre in cooperation with the Criminal Investigation Department, gauged concerns surrounding security and crime among GCC residents, Arabs, Asians and other foreign nationalities.
Major general Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, assistant commander-in-chief of criminal investigation affairs at the Dubai Police, said citizens and residents of the UAE enjoyed high levels of security a safety despite the presence of many different nationalities and cultures.
Up to 95.3 per cent of Dubai residents were found to feel secure and 97.8 per cent said they trusted in the integrity of the police force.
The UAE “has succeeded in establishing good relations in a community with many races, nationalities and social backgrounds, while providing security and safety across the country and protecting the rights of individuals and organisations, based on laws and legislations that honour their rights, and a just legal system that is efficient in deciding verdicts in local cases,” said Al Mansouri.
The emirate’s police force has recently been experimenting with new technologies to improve its capabilities including miniature robot patrol cars and robocob officers.
