Crime And Police In Dubai

Dubai has the reputation for being practically crime free but below you can read about some of the precautions you need to take into consideration when in purchasing property in Dubai.

The country's crime figures make very comfortable reading for purchasers of property in Dubai, with the incidence of serious crime at between 0.5 and 1 per 100,000 victims, when compared with the international average of 4 to 6 per 100,000 people.

However it is still wise to take a few elementary precautions when visiting Dubai as in any country, such as by leaving your important documents it in a safe place. As a tourist you won't be asked for identity by the police so it's not necessary to carry passports and credit card with you unless, of course, you are going shopping. Remember not to flash large amounts of cash in public places and be wary of going with unknown people away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

As a Muslim country, Dubai is very liberal but there are a few points for visitors to remember in order to show respect and not fall foul of local laws and customs: During Ramadan, Muslims fast during the day and drinking, smoking and eating in the street is forbidden. Usually separate areas are set aside where foreigners can have a meal or smoke. The local population, both male and female, wear long loose clothes which cover them up entirley and while foreigners do wear light summer clothing, shorts and skimpy clothes are not appropriate in Dubai.


The police force in Dubai prides itself on the being the most modern force with the most up to date equipment in the UAE.

There are 10 police stations in the city, which include Bur Dubai, Jebel Ali, Ports, Nad Al Sheba, Hatta, Al Quasis, Naif, Al Muraqqabat, Al Rashidiyah, and Al Rifaa.
