Dubai Police has started testing a new technology – ‘SPS-Express’- which features an emergency phone tower, it announced on Wednesday.
Brigadier Ali Ghanim, director of Al Muraqqabat Police Station, said the new technology has been developed by Dahua Technology and aims to offer end-to-end security solutions and services to improve police work.
It features an HD camera, night vision, video and audio talk facilities, remote monitor and broadcast and alarm integration. It also features various connection modes including 4G LTE and wifi.
Once approved, the ‘SPS-Express’ will be installed across the emirate at airports, parks, souks, and key locations to help the public connect with Dubai Police officers in case of emergencies, Ali Ghanim added.
Dubai’s police force has been testing out several new technologies, and late last year opened a new smart police station, which provides services without human intervention.
The station will be open 24 hours, seven days a week and offer 25 different services in six languages.
The emirate’s police force is looking to reduce the number of customers in police centres by 80 per cent with the introduction of smart stations, an official said.
The police force has also unveiled robot patrol cars and robot police officers and wants robots to make up 25 per cent of its patrolling officers by 2030.
Dubai’s police force is also training to use hover bikes for emergencies in the near future.
