This included over 18,000 emergency calls.
With over 21,000 phone calls and zero traffic deaths, Sharjah Police on Saturday confirmed the success of its comprehensive security and traffic plan that it had implemented during the Eid Al Fitr holidays in the Emirate.
The authority had intensified its security and traffic patrols in various neighbourhoods as well as on internal and external roads and in the Eastern and Central regions.
It attributed the success to the efforts made by various teams at mosques, malls and parks.
The authority revealed it had received 21,219 phone calls from within the emirate, between May 11 to 14 — including 18,677 emergency calls and 2,542 non-emergency calls.
All incoming calls, reports and inquiries were dealt with promptly in coordination with other police departments, it said.
The force explained that motorists' awareness and commitment to traffic safety measures added to the success of the traffic plan during the Eid holidays, despite the heavy traffic movement on the roads.
