With the holiday season upon us, many residents have left or are planning to leave on vacation, thus leaving their homes unattended. A vacant house invites crime and in some cases is a playground for robbery.
In a bid to help residents around the city, Dubai police has announced a new initiative, where residents can sign up for free, to have the police look after your home when you’re away on vacation. This home security service will have the cops patrolling your home throughout the summer, ensuring there is no break in or unusual activity. This free service was actually launched in 2001, with only a few people using it back then.
How to sign up for this? You can do this either though your smart phone, by filling out the ‘Home Security’ forms at the police station or by going through their website, using this link! Note that this service is only provided for people who own/live in villas or homes around the city. Even though this is absolutely free of charge, Dubai police has requested residents to take some basic precautions while traveling. Some of these include, to safely secure all door and windows, Deposit all money and valuables in the bank and smartly hide away things that are easy to steal (like car keys etc.).
Knowing this, you can now travel in peace, all thanks to Dubai, a city that truly cares!
