Dubai is considered to be a safe haven for
tourists. However if you are in a spot of bother, Dubai Police has created a
special cell dedicated to the protection of tourists in the emirate.
The Dubai Police’s
Tourist Security Department (TSD) was set up on August 5, 2007 with the idea of
protecting foreign tourists from any unforeseen trouble and promoting a sense
of well-being and security.
A toll-free hotline has been set up for the
purpose. And tourists can now contact the new division of police 24/7 at 800-4438
The TSD workers will provide maximum support
and assistance to the tourists taking into consideration that each minute of
their carefree holiday is precious. August, 5th2007 became the first working
day of TSD.
Dubai Police also has a confidential reporting
Al Ameen in place that helps visitors and residents solve security issues. The
department receives all kinds of security, social, economic, financial and
traffic problems, complaints and suggestions at the toll-free number 800-4888.
Members of the community can also communicate
by sending in a fax at 04-2097777 or by sending an e-mail on
firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending an SMS on 4444 or access
the website www.alameen.ae
