Dubai Police proposes tech-based “Police without Policemen” project

Dubai Police proposes tech-based “Police without Policemen” project

Dubai Police recently
proposed
a pathbreaking project called “Police Without Policemen” as part
of the Dubai 10X initiative.

The project will consist of 3 activations which aims to
implement the vision of Dubai as a city of the future:

The first activation include setting up fixed
cameras on fences and homes; to enforce the security and safety of the
community through a combination of crowd sourcing and deployment of advanced
technologies.

The second activation entails the launch of a surveillance
blimp; an airborne early warning control system that oversees open spaces and
projects under construction.

The third and final activation, labelled as the “Station in
Patrol”, which aims to provide rapid response to emergencies and replace the
need to build traditional police stations.

“With these projects we are bringing to reality the concept
of no policemen policing and ensuring that we achieve the highest levels of
security and safety for our people without the need for policemen being present
on-ground 24/7,” said Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, HE General Abdullah
Al Merri.

He also pointed out that sometimes in traditional policing
measures, valuable time is lost in identifying and arresting criminals.
However, with the disruptive innovation, the deployment of latest technologies
can help to scale up operational efficiency.

“These projects will serve as effective tools that help us
achieve our goal of serving our people. In this, we will leverage international
best practices that will benefit the community and the police force,” he added.

Under
the Dubai 10X initiative, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al
Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai
Foundation for the Future, has approved 26 projects presented by 24 government
departments.

The
shortlisted projects were evaluated by a panel of international experts from
more than 160 ideas submitted by 36 entities in less than 365 days.

Other than the Police without Policemen project, the Dubai
Police also launched other innovative and futuristic proposals at the 6th World
Government Summit recently held in Dubai. The projects aim to enhance the
ability of police to respond swiftly to future challenges.

“The public are our first and foremost strategic partner. We
are also working with Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority and property developers, in
general, as well as private sector entities that will supply, install and
operate the projects to be completed in two years through rigorous testing and
conforming to all requisite protocols and standards,” said HE Al Merri.

The Dubai Police has been actively launching technology-enabled
initiatives. As reported
earlier
in January, the Dubai
Police has launched an artificial intelligence (AI) -based surveillance
programme called Oyoon (Eyes). The aim of the project is to create an
integrated security system that utilises artificial intelligence features to
prevent crime, reduce traffic accident related deaths and prevent any negative
incidents in residential, commercial and vital areas.

In late
last year
, the Dubai Police released its 2018-31 strategic plan for AI. The
AI strategic plan covers community service centres and its clients; criminal
investigation; road security; disaster management and forensics. The plan seeks
to develop AI-assisted customer service centres, smart police stations in
different regions, as well as "walk in" and "drive through"
centres having robots.
