Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of the General Department of Criminal Investigation at Dubai Police, attributed this achievement to Dubai Police’s efforts and their smart devices innovated to guard the stores since 2018. "During the last year, we have set a time limit for 321 business licences to implement the new security conditions in a step to achieve 0% on the robbery crime index," Al-Jallaf added.
Brig. Al Jallaf said that Dubai Police pay excellent attention to Gold Souq and jewellery stores considering the significant role they play in the economy and tourism markets in the emirate. Accordingly, they are keen to establish strict security measures that ensure the application of safety procedures according to international standards and the latest technologies supported by artificial intelligence systems.
