Dubai: Dubai Police’s Smart Services will showcase more than 20 of their smart services at Gitex Technology Week between October 12-16, police officials announced at a press conference.

Colonel Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, General Director of Smart Services at Dubai Police, said that since Dubai Police’s smart services smart app was launched on November 6, 2013 and up until October 10 this year they have had 295,131 users and 1,384,463 people have been using the Dubai Police mobile website for the same period.

During that period there were more than 6.2 million transactions conducted worth Dh54.9 million.

Col Al Razooqi added they will be revealing the new kiosk machines for the public during Gitex. The new devices allow the public to have access to Dubai Police services round the clock, as well as get in contact with Dubai Police’s call centre operators through video/voice.

They will also showcase their Google Glass app to identify wanted cars.

Dubai Police also have the Google Glass-enabled ‘We are all police’ feature, so now people can take photos of traffic infringements using their Google Glass and send it to police.

Dubai Police Smart Services Department has also made the SOS services compatible with smart watches. People can also receive awareness messages from Dubai Police on their smart watches.

People can also access the Dubai Police app through their Samsung smart TV sets.

Lt Col Dr Ahmad Bin Subayh, Deputy Director of the Smart Services Department, spoke about the new Dubai police smart traffic patrols, with a smart radar that can be calibrated to the street’s legal speed, enabling the patrol officers to catch speeding vehicles on the go.

The smart patrol also has a fingerprint reader as well as an ID card reader, that will enable the officers to double check the identity of people suspected of being wanted.

Major Dr Mansour Abdul Razzaq, Head of the Virtual Applications Department, said that Dubai Police’s stand in Gitex will also have virtual reality headsets with an educational awareness programme that allows the user to simulate driving a car.
