Did you receive a pamphlet with an explanation on how to protect your vehicles from theft this weekend? Community officers from the Sharjah Police have been distributing leaflets in three languages - Arabic, English, Urdu - in Al Nahda area to create awareness on curbing negative behaviours in the emirate.
Secure Yourself, the latest campaign by the Sharjah Police hopes to raise awareness in reducing property crimes such as car thefts. The campaign, launched on Thursday will continue until October 10 in a bid to enhance the sense of security in the emirate.
Brigadier-General Mohammad Rashid Bayat, director-general of police operations at the Sharjah Police, said the force is keen to enhance security by curbing negative phenomena that appear from time to time. "The aim of this campaign is to increase vigilance among community members to protect their properties."
He urged the citizens and residents to cooperate with the security services and not hesitate to report anything that raises suspicion - 999 for emergencies; 901 for non-emergency cases; criminal investigation department on 80040, and, central region operations at 8027777-60.
