Renewing their pledge and allegiance to the nation’s wise leadership, and the pursuit of its march to glory, the Dubai Police Air Wing hung a huge UAE flag from a helicopter and flew past prominent landmarks, including Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and the Palm Jumeirah.

On Tuesday, Dubai Police conducted a National Day parade at Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard. Officers from the force, students from Dubai Police Academy, the police’s musical band, motorbikes, supercars fleet, the K9 department, the Dubai Mounted Police, cars and ambulances from Civil Defence were among the participating departments and units.

According to Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, this is the first parade to be organised after the Covid-19 pandemic and it included different units and departments from the force, with participation from the community, including school children and those people working around the Boulevard area.
