The Dubai Police General Command has encouraged the public to report any violations of Covid-19 precautionary measures either via the Dubai Police’s Call Centre (901) or its ‘Police Eye’ service.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention has already outlined strict compliance measures for individuals and commercial establishments to adhere to in order to stem the spread of the virus.

“Everyone is responsible and is a partner in supporting the country’s efforts in strengthening precautionary measures through their commitment to the guidelines outlined by authorities,” the Dubai Police said in a statement reported by state news agency WAM.

The 901 Call Centre, which operates 24×7, is aimed at diverting non-urgent calls from the emergency number and facilitating non-emergency services over the phone, smart application and live chat.

The ‘Police Eye’ service meanwhile is a smart programme available through the Dubai Police App which allows members of the public to report suspicious activities and submit security tips in total confidentiality.

The service aims to maintain security and reduce crime through encouraging the public to easily report illegal activities and violations. The application allows people to attach videos, photos or voice messages and even pin the location of the incident when filing a report.

Last month, Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management announced new restrictions that would be applicable to restaurants, gyms and events.

As per the new mandate, the number of people allowed to sit at one table has been reduced from 10 to seven at restaurants and to four at cafes.

Attendance to weddings, social events, and private parties, whether at a hotel or at home, is now limited to first-degree relatives, with the maximum number of people allowed capped at 10.

Also, all fitness centres and gyms in Dubai have to maintain 3 metres distance between the sports equipment.
