New Drone System to Aid Dubai Police

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, today visited the headquarters of Dubai Police. During the visit, Sheikh Mohammed unveiled the Drone Box, an unmanned aerial system designed to help Dubai Police improve its operational effectiveness and reduce emergency response rates.

The system is set to help reduce response time from 4 minutes 40 seconds to one minute for criminal reports. Sheikh Mohammed was briefed on the progress of the Oyoon project, an artificial intelligence (AI) programme implemented to raise Dubai’s profile as one of the world’s safest cities.

Sheikh Mohammed was received by Lieutenant-General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chief of Police and Public Security in Dubai; Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, and Dubai Police’s senior officers.

Sheikh Mohammed said Dubai Police’s efforts to develop the capabilities of its personnel through specialised training programmes, exchange of expertise with the world’s best police forces and adoption of the latest security technologies have enabled it to maintain high benchmarks of excellence. He particularly praised Dubai Police for its contributions as a frontline force in combating the pandemic.
