An officer of Bur Dubai Police Station has recently been promoted for his honesty as he turned down a tempting bribe offer by a wanted criminal, a statement issued by the Dubai Police on Friday said.

Sergeant Raed Qaid Abdulrahim had rejected the offer of Dh50,000, a luxury car, an expensive watch and a Dh20,000 monthly salary to release a wanted cybercriminal who he had arrested.

Lt. General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, ordered the promotion of officer Abdulrahim to the rank of 1st Sergeant in recognition of his honesty and dedication.

According to Brigadier Abdullah Khadim Sorour Al Maasim, Director of the Bur Dubai Police Station, 1st Sgt Abdulrahim immediately reported the matter to the Public Funds Prosecution and outwitted the criminal into handing over all his properties and revealing his accomplices.

First Sgt Abdulrahim's honesty, integrity and dedication reflected the honourable image of Dubai Police officers, the statement added.

The promoted cop expressed his gratitude to Lt. General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri for promoting him and appreciating his conduct.

"The promotion serves as a badge of honour on my chest and an incentive for all my colleagues and myself to increase our efforts, dedication and sincerity," 1st Sgt Abdulrahim said.
