The devices were manufactured by the Telecommunications and Electronic Development Administration of Dubai Police, which falls under the General Directorate of Operations. "Work on these devices took almost a year to complete. They were manufactured totally at the workshops of Dubai Police," said Engineer Asem Mohammed Al Maheiri, Head of the Electronic Development Section at the General Directorate of Operations.

The work, said the official, was carried out by police officers and technicians. The device has been designed to meet police requirements in measuring the degree of tinting on car window glass. The official said an intensive campaign to detect violations by motorists was currently being implemented. Motorists are allowed to have a 30 per cent tinting, and erring car owners would be fined up to Dh 10,000 for violating the rule.
