We are the most forward thinking and progressive Arab Police Force today. Comprising our ranks are fifteen thousand personnel of the highest educational standard of any organization. Dubai Police Force comes under the direction of His Highness (HH) Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
Dubai Police was established on June 1st, 1956 in Naif Fort, which is still operates as a police station. In 1973 the Dubai Police Headquarters moved to its present location, in Al Towar area - Al Etihad Street. Our slogan is Quality!
We use excellent performance standards and have highly defined descriptions of our tasks, duties and jurisdictions. We have developed institutional performance criteria in the application of strategic planning, simplifying procedures and managing the human and financial resources more proficiently. We take pride in our creative initiatives, appreciate personal excellence and work as one team.
Accordingly, the Dubai police have established a Scholarship Department which is responsible for the administration of the scholarship program that funds students who are approved for study abroad. Substantial amounts of federal funds are invested each year in providing study opportunities in other countries. Competition for a limited number of scholarships is keen.
In order to assist students in finding appropriate placements in higher education institutions abroad, to assist in the cultural and academic adjustment of the student and to monitor the student’s performance, the Scholarship Department works through the Cultural Attaches Offices (CAO) attached to the United Arab Emirates Embassies in the various countries.
