World's first floating smart police station to open in Dubai

DUBAI, October 10, 2019

UAE's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has unveiled the model of the world's first floating Smart Police Station (SPS), at Gitex 2019 in Dubai.
Free of any human intervention, the station will be opened in the sea off Dubai’s World Islands next year. It will help sea users and World Island residents enjoy key services, including the reporting of crimes, traffic incidents and community services, said a Wam news agency report.
Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, who attended the ceremony along with key police officers, affirmed the keenness of the Dubai Police Headquarters to advance the development of the Smart Police Station, which, he said, has proved to be a unparalleled global success in providing services without human intervention.
"The project will be in cooperation with Kleindienst Group, which developed ‘Heart of Europe’ in Dubai. Our partnership with Dubai Police is based on innovation and creative engineering," said Josef Kleindienst, founder and chairman of the Kleindienst Group.
"We were the first company in the world to develop a classic and unique idea of living on floating villas above and under the water. We are pleased with our cooperation with police to build the first floating SPS," he added.
Meanwhile, Brigadier Khalif Al Razooqi, director of the Artificial Intelligence Department of Dubai Police, said that the floating station is the fourth SPS station in Dubai after City Walk, following other drive thru and walk in versions located around the emirate.
"The modern floating station will operate 24 hours, seven days a week and offer 27 key services, including reporting of crimes, traffic incidents and community services. It will also provide 33 fully automated sub-services in six different languages. Our aim to provide police services for everybody and part of police strategy to provide smart services in Dubai," Al Razooqi added.
