Dubai Police and Dubai e-Government have teamed up to raise public awareness to the online services offered by the law enforcement agency and the Emirate's e-government portal — www.dubai.ae.

The government’s virtual services have been tailored to ease the lives of citizens and empower businesses through the effective deployment of IT.

“Our primary objective is to provide cost and time efficient services to the citizens of Dubai which will assist them to go about their work with greater competence,” says Salem Al Shair director, e-Services, Dubai e-Government.

“By reducing paperwork and offering a whole host of e-services we hope to reduce long queues, cut down on manual time-consuming procedures and offer speedier and more efficient services to the people,” adds Al Shair at the official launch of the awareness campaign.

Also attending the launch of the campaign was Major General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, commander-in-chief, Dubai Police.

“Dubai Police is one of the foremost government departments in the emirate to take up the challenge to offer e-services to citizens in record time and with remarkable efficiency,” says Al Shair.

“The impressive efficiency of Dubai police has always been a matter of pride for the emirate and with the launch of its comprehensive e-services, we can now look forward to more path breaking initiatives from the department,” he adds.

Currently, the Dubai police web site offers several services, such as information on traffic violations, congestion, safety and security, road maps, contact numbers including the addresses of all police stations in Dubai and precautionary steps to be taken in the event of emergencies.

With the deployment of a smart camera, the public will also be able to see intersections, roads and traffic congestion. This will enable them to take alternative routes and avoid getting stuck in traffic jams.
