The Dubai Police General Command announced the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) systems into 29 administrative operations across various departments.

This initiative, which aligns with the directives of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, optimises time and effort for both employees and customers while bolstering Dubai’s security framework. It also leverages the annual ‘Dubai Universal Blueprint for Artificial Intelligence’, which includes initiatives and programmes to enhance Dubai’s economic competitiveness, resilience, quality of life, and future readiness.

Major General Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, Director of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police, emphasised the continuous efforts to enhance police operations through AI adoption.

“This initiative strengthens the community’s security and safety, prevents crime, and elevates customer satisfaction, ultimately reinforcing trust in the police force and boosting the emirate’s security index,” he said.

Accident Smart Planning and Vehicle History Records

Alrazooqi explained that Dubai Police is developing a ‘Smart Planning for Minor Traffic Accidents’ mechanism using AI technologies. “This will enable the analysis of accidents and the generation of immediate reports for drivers without human intervention, reducing the steps involved in obtaining a “Minor Accident” report from seven to four,” he said.

Alrazooqi further stated that AI is being integrated into the “Vehicle History Record,” allowing prospective buyers to easily access a vehicle’s accident history and providing a clear picture of its mechanical condition before purchase.

OFFICER ‘AMNA’ AND THE SMART APP: One of Dubai Police’s prominent AI applications is “Amna,” a virtual officer capable of interacting with the public and answering inquiries in both Arabic and English. Officer Amna, holding the rank of 1st Lieutenant, is available on the Dubai Police app and responds to inquiries about police services through voice commands. In 2023, Officer Amna conducted 20,000 conversations with the public.

The updated Dubai Police smart app, available on iOS, Android, and Huawei platforms, also incorporates AI features to enhance user experience and facilitate access to services.
