Al Ghaithi explained the plan includes dispatching 412 patrols, 3,200 police officers, 60 traffic wardens, 29 bicycles, 62 ambulances, 650 volunteers, 442 paramedics, 10 rescue marine boats, 14 security maritime boats and 165 lifeguards on Dubai beaches, and 2,400 security personnel from private companies deployed in the emirate’s vital markets and commercial centres. 

He also urged the public to cooperate with Dubai Police by sticking to specified speeds limits to avoid traffic accidents, and to adhere to Covid-19 protocols by wearing masks and maintaining physical distancing in public places during the festive celebrations. He also called upon the community members to contact the force’s non-emergency call centre (901) to report any violations.
