Dubai Police are looking for bike patrol volunteers
Saddle up and join Dubai Police bike patrols to help with Covid-19 awareness…
The inside track
If you’re fit, healthy, know how to ride a bicycle and are looking for a way to give back to the community, Dubai Police has got the post for you.
They’re asking for bicycle team volunteers as part of the ‘Ride With Dubai Police’ initiative to patrol certain Dubai locations and share information with the public on the ‘precautionary and preventive measures’ in force to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic.
Volunteers are needed for patrols through JBR, Jumeirah, Arabian Ranches, City Walk, Downtown and Al Khawaneej.

Captain Khalifa Mohammed Al-Rum, director of Dubai Police Platform for Volunteering said that those looking to apply for a post will need to be fit, own their own vehicle and safety equipment (such as a helmet), and are certified Covid-free.
A police jacket will be provided, and all rides will be supervised.
