In a strategic move to address warehouse security, mandatory break-resistant locks were enforced, resulting in zero recorded crimes in 309 warehouses across Dubai
Dubai Police have launched innovative security projects aimed at fortifying the safety of residential and retail spaces, leveraging advanced technology and artificial intelligence. Focused on combating crimes such as theft and assault, these initiatives utilise breakthrough solutions to streamline operations, optimise resources, and elevate overall security across the emirate.
Recognising vulnerabilities in residential communities, construction sites, money transfer companies, and Dubai’s Gold Souk, the police have implemented targeted measures. The Gold Souk now boasts enhanced security features, including break-resistant glass panels, impenetrable locks, and mandatory iron doors, effectively reducing the risk of criminal activities.
In a strategic move to address warehouse security, mandatory break-resistant locks were enforced, resulting in zero recorded crimes in 309 warehouses across Dubai. Collaborative efforts with project partners have successfully identified and rectified potential security lapses, bolstering the overall effectiveness of these crime prevention initiatives.
Among the projects initiated last year, residential complexes now mandate the installation of surveillance cameras linked to police control rooms and regular security patrols. Additionally, a comprehensive approach involves coordination with relevant authorities to ensure that all gardeners are licensed and possess valid working visas, introducing regulations for informal employment in the coming months.
The evolution of the Policeman Is Your Neighbour project includes the incorporation of civilian volunteers, opening avenues for public participation in gathering community information for the police. Emphasising community engagement as a shared responsibility, the initiative aims to enhance overall security with the inclusion of 540 public members alongside police officers.
Dubai Police’s security schemes have notably recorded zero ‘key’ crimes, signifying the success of initiatives such as the Smart Home Project. Encouraging homeowners to install sensors, cameras, and remote monitoring, the project has resulted in no recorded thefts in 330 homes last year and an additional 450 homes this year. Mandatory security measures for property developers, including lighting, trained personnel, internal patrols, and surveillance cameras, contribute to the comprehensive security landscape facilitated by these forward-thinking initiatives.
