New Abu Dhabi desert patrol runs on four legs

 

DUBAI – Don’t be surprised when you see the Abu Dhabi Police pull up in a camel—it’s the police force’s latest desert patrol.

The camel patrol, named Hajana, is part of Abu Dhabi Police’s efforts to promote Emirati heritage while increasing safety and security in the emirate.

Major General Mohammed Al Romaithi, Abu Dhabi Police Chief, said the initiative is part of a drive to increase pride in local culture and reduce crime.

“Police have been trained to work with the camels in accordance with best practices to carry out their civic duty and prevent crime,” Al Romaithi said. GAD/Expat Media
