Dubai Police have reported a 63.2 per cent drop in criminal reports filed in Dubai year-on-year. Upon reviewing the 2022 statistics vs 2021, Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police attributed the drop in criminal reports to the innovative security projects recently unveiled and to the dedicated and qualified personnel.
