50 young people in Dubai have been honing their security skills after receiving some training as part of the Dubai Police Safety Ambassadors programme. The aim of the programme was to raise security awareness levels amongst the younger generation within schools and communities.
The pupils also conducted 126 field visits to Dubai Police’s smart police stations, where they welcomed customers and briefed them on the fully-automated police station that offers smart police services round the clock and without human intervention.
Over the past two years, the programme has successfully honed the different skills of 50 male and female students of different nationalities, including their technical skills, as they joined specialists and technicians of the General Department of Artificial Intelligence at Dubai Police Artificial Intelligence in assembling 20 new computers and setting up 24 others.
Dubai Police Safety Ambassadors also assisted employees at the Security Innovation Lab and briefed 40 visitors on the Dubai Police’s innovation platform. They also contributed to the platform with ten suggestions and helped organise 16 scientific visits.
In addition, the Safety Ambassadors also responded to 2,150 non-emergency calls made to the Dubai Police 901 Call Centre. They also edited 20 press releases and conducted 24 interviews for the Dubai Police children’s magazine ‘Khalid.’
They also participated in the Dubai Police Academy military parades and nine awareness lectures at Modhesh World, benefiting 1,200 individuals.
