These centers, he added, will help the Dubai Police deliver its strategic goal of ensuring security which is a key pillar for development and ensuring timely and effective response and the ability to promptly reach an accident site.
'”Construction of these centers will commence early next year and will be completed within a period of nine months to two years, depending on the size and area of the centre and the population density of the district it will serve,”' he explained.
The centers, he added, were designed to cater for employees and customers with disabilities.
