Dubai Police have made it easier for people living in or visiting Dubai to report any wrongdoing and get help quickly from the authorities.

Have you been a victim of a crime, noticed anything suspicious, or seen road accidents or violations? Now, you can report them at any nearby petrol station in Dubai. You don't have to go to a police station anymore, as Dubai Police have made it easier for residents and tourists to report incidents and get quick help from authorities.

Dubai Police has teamed up with petrol companies like Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc), Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and Emarat to introduce a new service called On-the-Go. This innovative service allows individuals to report violations and contribute to improving security measures conveniently. According to Dubai Police, this initiative aims to ensure everyone's safety.

First Lieutenant Majid bin Saed Al Kaabi, head of the On-the-Go initiative, highlighted that this initiative is the first of its kind globally, providing police services at fuelling stations.

Al Kaabi added that the services are available at 138 petrol stations across Dubai, with a total of 4,867 staff members from 11 entities trained to assist customers. These entities include Enoc, Adnoc, Emarat, Dubai Taxi Corporation, Emirates Transport, International Centre for Security and Safety, First Security Group, Ward Security, Aman Security Training, Transguard Group, and Emirates Auctions.

'Police Eye' services

The recent addition of police services at petrol stations is part of the 'Police Eye' initiative. 'Police Eye' was introduced a few years ago through the Dubai Police app, website, and police stations, enabling the public to report crimes. Over the past five years, Dubai Police have received more than 108,100 tips and information from the public, covering a wide range of issues including traffic violations, child and women abuse, human trafficking, illegal drug use, and other violations. 'Police Eye' is also utilized for reporting traffic accidents, missing persons, scams, e-crimes, and receiving tip-offs from abroad, particularly regarding illicit drugs. Dubai Police encourage the public to report any road safety violations through the 'Police Eye' app or by calling 901.
