Dubai Police is planning to build the world’s largest police cap as part of plans for the new Dubai Police Museum, according to a report by Dubai-based newspaper Gulf News.

Major General Rahman Mohammed Rafei, director-general of the Department of Community Services at the Dubai Police, said the shape of the new museum was the idea of Lt Gen Dahdi Khalfan Tamim, deputy chairman of Police and General Security and former Dubai Police Chief.

He explained that Lt Gen Dahi said he wanted to break out of the traditional look of museums and adapt a modern approach to the design of the building.

The building itself will be four storeys high and will overlook Al Ittihad Road and Al Mulla Plaza.

Rafei added that the museum will be built at Dubai Police’s Headquarters but will be positioned in a way that complements the Al Qiyadah Metro station so that passengers can view the museum as they pass.

The old museum, which is also located at Dubai Police Headquarters, documents all aspects of achievement of the police since its inception in 1956, as well as informing about law and order in the country.

The new museum will house all the artifacts from the old building and additional features as the size of the building is significantly larger.

Research halls will also be made available in the new museum for researchers working on paper related to Dubai Police can access the information they need.

“The museum’s budget has been approved and the preliminary plans are underway,” Rafei said.

It is expected the new record will be the emirate's latest entry to the Guinness World Records.

well, it really won't be a cap, will it? It won't be the biggest cap. Perhaps the biggest cap-shaped building or design but I doubt that it will be a cap made of the same materials.
