Police without policemen: Dubai to use advanced technology for better surveillance
Gone are the days when the police patrol was a common sight, Dubai is on the verge to make a history. On Monday, the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) announced that a new initiative called “Police without Policemen” would be implemented very soon.
Technology surpases human surveillance
Under this initiative, the Dubai Police would be reassigned to fewer administrative and procedural tasks. Rather, most of the operations would be backed with advanced technology.
This initiative will be implemented under Dubai 10X plan, which aims at taking the government entities 10 years ahead of most of the countries and cities.
In 6th World Government Summit held in February, Dubai 10X initiative was unveiled by General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, the Dubai Police Commander-in-Chief, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of DFF.
This new initiative plans to fix cameras on fences and homes, to ensure the security and safety of the different community.
'Police Without Policemen' - Ramp up security to the next level, using modern technology and advancements.
'Station in Patrol' - Rapid response to an emergency situation, this would be replaced by the police stations.
