Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has approved Dubai Police’s new strategy, which is based on innovation, security, and connection.

The new strategy aims to ensure the highest levels of security, safety and happiness for Emiratis and expatriates living in the city, a statement said.

It added that Sheikh Mohammed praised efforts of the police service and its keenness to implement the best internationally recognised practices and experiences.

He instructed Dubai Police to carry on with its development process while maintaining the "highest standards to keep abreast of the rapid development experienced by various sectors in the emirate".

According to the statement, the new strategy aims to strengthen the efficiency and competence of police to deal with "any challenges to ensure safe and stable life for all community members, as well as a better work environment in the emirate".

Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said the new strategy is inspired by Sheikh Mohammed’s vision for building a safe and productive community.

“The strategy is based on three key principles: innovation, security and connection that reflect Dubai’s approach towards the future,” Al Marri added.
