The Abu Dhabi Police General Directorate has launched the first-of-its-kind service in the region to coincide with the 2018 Etihad Airways Grand Prix, by forming a new media arm to enhance direct communication with the community providing real-time reports on roads and traffic conditions in Abu Dhabi.
