Dubai: Dubai Police will soon introduce a new service that allows specific members of the public to send in photos and video clips of traffic violations in areas that lack video surveillance, according to an Arabic daily in the UAE.

Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, acting Chief of Dubai Police, said that Dubai Police will be launching a special server in the operations room to receive data from individuals who are granted permission to upload files of traffic violations, especially ones that hamper the traffic flow.

Al Mazeina said that action will be taken against the motorist after the photo and video evidence has been sent.

He pointed out that this step is part of Dubai Police’s aims to develop new methods and modernise the system adopted by the Command and Control Centre, in line with the directives of Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan, Dubai Police Chief.

Al Mazeina pointed out the plan includes the installation of new systems and programs in the Command and Control Centre in order to better serve the public. He said that such upgrades are in line with Dubai Police’s strategy to combat crime, and ensure peace and security for the public.
