RAK Police's new instant response initiative
Ras Al Khaimah - Assistant security patrols have been deployed to support footed and mounted policemen within the specified residential districts, to take part in security inspections.
Sparing no effort in ensuring security in the emirate, Ras Al Khaimah Police have launched the 'Residential District' initiative.
Conceived by the community police department, to be initially implemented by the Maamura Police Station, the move is an innovative policing system wherein field teams can get in touch with the public at designated areas, said a top police official.
"Such effective communication helps detect all types of problems and issues that may target the local community, or be raised by the local residents," said Lt Col Ibrahim Mattar, acting chief of the Maamura police station.
The team will get feedback from the public on their concerns, related to security, social, civil environmental, familial, cultural and so on. "These shall then be noted and referred to the bodies concerned to work out the right solutions," Lt Col Mattar said.
"The RAK police have also deployed new security patrols to enhance instant security response to all reports as quickly as possible; the service is round the clock, and covers all areas of the emirate, mainly the internal and residential ones."
This is done through instant communication with the Central Operations Room of the RAK police. "Instant response to all reports will boost security and stability in the emirate."

The Maamura police station has tied up with many public entities in the emirate to boost cooperation keeping public interest community service to all segments of the society in mind, Lt-Col Mattar stated.
Rashid Saeed, an Emirati resident in Maamura area, said they have long been waiting for such an initiative. "The drive will enhance intercommunication between the law enforcement bodies and the public."
"The move will also boost a swift response to all types of reports, mainly crimes and traffic accidents," said Ali Salem, another Emirati national in the Maamura area. "Talking directly to policemen break the ice between the public and the police."
"It is really a win-win situation," said Maher Saad, an Egyptian resident. "People will be safer, and have their concerns attended in a better and quicker way, while the policemen will be able to do their job better and ensure safety, security, and stability more efficiently."
