DUBAI – CCTV cameras that can scan faces will soon be rolled out at Dubai Metro stations, according to a Dubai Police official.
The cameras will use artificial intelligence to recognize and identify people in the wanted list in less than a minute.
“This technology has proven its effectiveness to identify suspicious and wanted people,” said Obaid Al Hathboor, director of Dubai Police’s Transport Security Department.
“We aspire to raise our performance by building on our current capabilities, to ensure a high level of security in metro stations and other transport sectors,” Al Hathboor said.

Jamal Rashed, also from the Transport Security Department, said the high-tech CCTV cameras will be installed in all metro stations in the coming months.
“It took at least five hours to identify a suspect before,” said Rashed, adding, “With this technology, it takes less than a minute.” ICA/Expat Media
