The car owner, who is an Egyptian doctor, posted the incident on social media
A Dubai policeman was promoted after he lodged an accident report against himself.
In a statement on Wednesday, the police said Corporal Abdullah Ibrahim Mohammed lodged a complaint against himself after he hit a parked car and put up a copy of the accident report on the windscreen of the accident car.
The car owner, who is an Egyptian doctor, posted the incident on social media, with the news being picked up by the Egyptian media, which praised Dubai Police for their hard work and dedication.
Dubai Police Chief Major-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri honored the officer and promoted him for his integrity and sincerity.
Excellent example to society
This is great. All the best to this officer.
He caused an accident, did his job properly, some may say, but how many of us do that when no one is watching and easier to ignore it? reporting it could also put a scratch in one's file in the HR? then again will this create a feeling that doing the right thing should always be rewarded? just saying.
These are the values and the standard of training imparted by Dubai Police - without doubt one of the best Police Forces in the world. I am proud to be protected by them for the last 25 years.
