Dubai Airports Security Department receives 7-star Rating

The General Department of Airports Security at Dubai Police, represented by the Security Department of Terminal 3, has recently received a 7-Star rating in the 8th International Best Practice Competition (IBPC) 2022 for effectively and efficiently implementing Dubai Airport's 'XOVIS' project for passenger inspection.

The Department's profile competed against 60 cases from eight countries that joined the competition, which is organised by the Institutional Excellence Research Centre in New Zealand.

Brigadier Hamouda Bal Suwaida Al Ameri, Acting Director of the General Department of Airports Security at Dubai Police, attributed the prestigious recognition to the wise directives of Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police; and the continuous support of Pilot Major General Ahmad Muhammad bin Thani, Assistant Commandant for Ports Affairs.

He added,

"Project' XOVIS', which is implemented in coordination with Dubai Airports (DXB) and Emirates Airlines, optimises thermal sensors to ensure the smoothness of passengers' inspection process at security checkpoints and finalises their procedures in less than five minutes," "The Project succeeded in achieving 99.81 percent during 2021 when the target was 95 percent."

Brig. Al Ameri explained that the thermal sensors provide instant data on passengers' traffic flow so that airport operators take quick measures by operating more devices and checkpoints and increasing the number of employees.

The International Best Practice Competition (IBPC) encourages organisations to share their best operational and managerial practices, processes, systems, and initiatives and learn from the experience of others.
