His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council, personally visited several key areas in the emirate where the country’s frontliners continue to serve the public.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed visited a number of security and services departments in Dubai on the first day of Eid including the Dubai Police Station in Al Qusais, State Security Department, Dubai Civil Defense and Dubai Ambulance. His Highness extended his best wishes to the staff of these entities on the occasion of Eid.

His Highness said that Dubai’s reputation as one of the safest cities in the world is not a coincidence but the result of dedicated efforts to ensure high levels of security and raise service excellence. The collaboration between various social stakeholders and the cooperation extended by citizens and residents have also been key factors in achieving this exceptional profile. This cooperation plays a vital role in the emirate’s ability to overcome challenges in the current situation, he said.

Sheikh Hamdan started his series of visits with the Dubai Police Station in Qusais, where he was welcomed by Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, and a number of senior officials. His Highness was briefed about Dubai Police’s preparedness to manage operations in the upcoming phase. Al Marri said Dubai Police has intensified patrols in various roads in Dubai and in crowded areas to ensure people comply with precautionary measures.

His Highness thanked the volunteers for their efforts.

His Highness also visited the Dubai Civil Defense office in Al Qusais, where he was welcomed by Major General Expert Rashid Thani Al Matrooshi.

Following that, His Highness visited the offices of the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services where he was welcomed by the CEO Khalifa Hassan Al Darrai. The Crown Prince was briefed about the department’s services developed as part of the efforts to mitigate the COVID-19 outbreak and its readiness to deal with potential emergencies and challenges.

His Highness was briefed about recently introduced service initiatives including the use of advanced bikes and scooters to respond quickly to emergencies especially in peak times and crowded places.
