Smartphone users have been given the option of not using a number of cards to verify identification, as the Dubai Police e-Service has added more smart service provisions. The public now can present their driving licences on smartphones.

“They can also show identification documents (ID); car ownership cards (Mulkia) and be able to carry out vehicle registrations via smartphones,” said the Director General of e-Service, Col Khalid Naasir Al Razouqi.

Some services are an addition to the existing ones. “We have extended smart services to include the ability to identify people on the wanted list,” added Col Al Razouqi.

He attributed this achievement to the “relentless efforts of e-Service department together with other major departments within the Dubai Police to match with our resolve of becoming a fully-fledged smart service police.”

The Colonel said the development is “in the direction of Dubai becoming a Smart City as directed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai,”

Two months ago, the Dubai Police started using Google smart glasses to monitor traffic violators and track down wanted vehicles.

Google Glass is a small computer mounted onto glasses. The glasses are in position to take pictures of the vehicle under violation and send it automatically to the traffic system showing time, location and date of the occurrence of the violation.

AL Razouqi told the media that through Google glass, the police officers can glance at the licence plate and allow the glasses to scan and indicate whether the licence complies with the police record system. The Glass is compatible with both Android and iOS.
