Colonel Ahmed Jassim Al Zaabi, Director of the Central Region Police Department, said: "The campaign aims to enhance security and safety in the region, by intensifying the security presence on the roads, and monitoring vehicles for the sale of "scrap", to ensure that they don't violate the legal procedures of these type of activities and are not exploited to commit a crime, such as theft."

He urged companies involved in this field to abide by the rules and ensure they have the necessary commercial licenses to operate.
