Law enforcement is 10th entity to sign up with Dubai Smart Government’s single-sign-on initiative
Dubai Smart Government Department has announced that Dubai Police has joined the MyID service, which offers a single sign-on for government services in the emirate.
Dubai Police's sign-up brings the number of entities participating in the service to 10. The departments include Dubai Department of Economic Development (DED), Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Municipality, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Dubai Public Prosecution, Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment.
Members of the public using Dubai Police services can now register for a single username and password related to MyID, which gives access to a number of functions, including paying traffic fines; reporting a crime, traffic accident or bounced cheque; applying for clearance or good conduct certificates; and inquiring about the status of roads.
"Dubai Smart Government strives to provide the infrastructure and shared services to enable government entities to give the public smooth access to their services round the clock wherever they are," said HE Ahmed Bin Humaidan, director-general of Dubai Smart Government.
The website (https://myid.dubai.gov.ae) allows all customers of Dubai government entities participating in the service to register with MyID.
According to DSG's latest statistics, as many as 38,000 users have so far registered with the service.
