Police in Abu Dhabi and Dubai polish language skills
The report said it has become a common scene at UAE airports to see police officers talking to tourists in their own tongues, thanks to extensive language programmes aimed at enabling police staff of all ranks to speak widely spoken foreign languages.
I think it's also high time to have English forms, like those forms that they give you when you have accidents. sometimes they ask you to sign it but how can a person sign something he doesn't understand because he cannot read it?

It's extremely important that ALL UAE police, fire departments and ambulance services get training in at least the universal language, English. But, I guess this is a slow but sure step forward in making that happen, so a tiny pat on the back for the police department
