Dubai Police has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Emaar Properties to set up smart police stations at Emaar projects to provide all police services to tenants and owners without human intervention.

Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, director of artificial intelligence department of Dubai Police, signed the agreement with Ahmad Thani Al Matroushi, managing director of Emaar Properties, to set up the first smart police station in Arabian Ranches, state news agency WAM reported.

The walk-in station will be open 24 hours, seven days a week. The station offers 27 key services such as reporting crimes and traffic incidents as well as community services ranging from getting a good-conduct certificate to social support for victims of family violence.

The services can be accessed in six different languages without human intervention and Al Razooqi said the move aims to reduce the number of people visiting police stations by 80 percent.

Al Razooqi praised the cooperation with Emaar Properties to establish more smart police stations in the future.

"We are keen to communicate and reach all members of the public to provide best smart services for their happiness. The new station in Arabian Ranches will give services round the clock," he added.

Al Matroushi said that Emaar Properties is keen to cooperate with innovative entities like Dubai Police to provide the best services to the residents.

"Having smart police stations will provide smart, excellent and easy services to the public," he said.
