The emergency response time of Ras Al Khaimah Police's Central Operations has increased by 12 per cent during the first half of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020.

The police achieved all the objectives by enhancing the preparedness of the operation room staff to respond to quickly to all types of emergency situations. This has contributed positively to the safety and security of the emirate.

Brig-Gen Dr Mohammad Saeed Al Hamidi, director-general of Central Operations at Ras Al Khaimah Police, stressed that the results are an embodiment of the Ministry of Interior's strategic goal of enhancing security, safety and preparedness for crises through rapid response to emergency situations.

The police also introduced development initiatives that support performance indicators and followed best practices to reduce response times.
