SHARJAH: Excessive efforts by Sharjah Police contributed in reducing serious crime rate by 58 per cent last year. This fulfilled the aim of securing Sharjah City and the Ministry of Interior’s objective of making the UAE one of the most secure countries in the world.

This was stated by Maj. Gen. Saif Al Zeri Al Shamsi, Commander in Chief of Sharjah Police during the Sharjah Media Forum on Tuesday. He also stated that the sense of security among UAE citizens increased by 98 per cent in 2018.

Al Shamsi attributed such accomplishments to the crime fighting strategies adopted by Sharjah Police while implementing their plans.

He also spoke about strengthening the security control system in industrial and commercial facilities in Sharjah, as well as intensifying security patrols in residential areas.

Al Shamsi also mentioned that seven security campaigns have been launched based on analytical and security studies covering 220 areas and 539,740 people.
