Dubai Police Ready For Eid
(21 September 2015)


Dubai Police will have 16 women patrols during the Eid Al Adha holidays.

Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, Dubai Police Chief, said that the women patrols will be available in case there is a need for a woman officer, and they will also be in areas with a high female presence, such as parks with women-only days.

During Eid there will be 216 police patrols across Dubai and 167 plainclothes police patrols from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

He said the undercover patrols will target areas that tend to get crowded in Eid, such as malls, public parks, Eid prayer grounds and tourist areas.

Major General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, assistant to the Dubai Police Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said the mobile police station will move across Dubai during Eid.

“The mobile police station, which offers all Dubai Police services, will be stationed in areas frequented by people during the holidays,” he said.

People should not leave their valuables unattended, especially beachgoers, he said, adding that people should be attentive towards their children during these busy days so they do not get lost or hurt.

He also urged people who are leaving the country on vacation to register their villas with Dubai Police Home Security service to avoid burglaries.

In addition to the security parols, Dubai Traffic Police will have 189 traffic patrols on Dubai streets during Eid Al Adha.

Colonel Jamal Al Bannai, acting director of Dubai Traffic Police, said traffic teams have been formed to regulate traffic in market areas, malls and places that tend to get crowded during Eid.

“There will be more patrols on outer roads such as Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, Shaikh Zayed Road, Emirates Road, Dubai-Al Ain Road, Ras Al Khor, Academic City Road and Al Khawaneej,” he said.

Police will also be present in areas where there tend to be many pedestrians, to prevent jaywalking.

Isnad patrols, which are undercover traffic patrols to catch reckless drivers and those who race on the city’s streets, will be increased during Eid. Police will also be deployed around Eid prayer grounds and mosques to organise traffic.

He urged the public to cooperate with police officers.

Motorists should not speed or drive recklessly, especially in residential areas, in order to avoid run-over accidents.

“Parents should always keep an eye on their children so they don’t stray or cross the road, which can put them at risk of being run over,” he said.

People should report any traffic offence or violation through ‘We are all Police’ on 8004353.

The Maritime Rescue Department urged beachgoers to stay safe during Eid, and avoid swimming more than 300-500 metres away from the beach.

Major Ali Abdullah Al Naqbi, Head of the Maritime Rescue Department at the Department of Transport and Rescue of Dubai Police, warned the public to pay heed to currents and high waves.

People should also follow safety regulations dictated by Dubai Police and the municipality, such as not swimming when the red flag is up to avoid any accidents.

He said that people should only swim in designated areas and not beyond the marked areas to avoid getting hit by jet skis. People on jet skis should also avoid going near swimmers.

However, he said, Dubai Police are prepared for any emergencies or incidents that might occur during Eid.

All of the departments’ eight maritime rescue points will be operational, with 70 life guards and divers, in addition to 23 boats, 72 jet skis and one amphibious vehicle.

There will also be 10 maritime rescue cars and 41 boat operators to help anyone who meets with an accident.

The department also has radar that can catch people who speed on their boats or jet skis. “People should abide by the designated speed limit, which ranges between 5-10 knots depending on the area.”
