Community policing plays a crucial role in ensuring security and maintaining a stable environment for economic growth and prosperity. Through strong partnerships and collaboration with community key persons and active groups, Dubai police forces can gather valuable insights and proactively prevent imminent threats that can affect individuals and businesses.

In line with this, Dubai Police hosted the Community Police Dialogue Session, on 20th October 2022 in Mina AlSalam, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, providing a platform to discuss community-oriented policing strategies and solutions and its role in enhancing the public safety and security. The conference gathered Dubai police senior officers, heads of security from key communities, including residential, educational establishments, commercial and entertainment communities, and technology experts to share knowledge on the best strategies to effectively strengthen security through partnerships between Dubai police forces and society members.
