Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, the Commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, said the second version of the Hemaya Clip initiative would be launched in May.

The Dubai Police had launched the initiative in October 2019 to help students raise awareness against drug addiction.

Colonel Abdullah Matar Al Khayat also confirmed the launch timeline.

Lt-Gen Al Marri said the upcoming version would be an international outreach in a bid to help students from other countries to take part in the contest.

Last Thursday, Dubai Police honoured six winners of the initiative, including Ali Omran, who won the first prize and received Dh100,000 for his video, which carried the best social message against drug addiction.

Altogether, 1,040 videos were submitted by students from 50 different nationalities.
