Dubai: Dubai Police have urged people to volunteer in their biker unit initiative to educate others about precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus, an official said.
Colonel Mohammad Ahli, deputy director of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Dubai Police, said the new initiative, will allow volunteers to ride Dubai Police bicycles and spread awareness about the disease.
Here’s a video sourced by Gulf News that show Dubai Police call people to volunteer for spreading awareness:
Volunteers are needed for patrols through JBR, Jumeirah, Arabian Ranches, City Walk, Downtown and Al Khawaneej.
Captain Khalifa Mohammed Al-Rum, director of Dubai Police Platform for Volunteering said that those looking to apply for a post will need to be fit, own their own vehicle and safety equipment (such as a helmet), and are certified Covid-free.
A police jacket will be provided, and all rides will be supervised.
This scheme is a brilliant opportunity to help spread positivity, share insight and get some outdoor exercise time.
And if you’re lucky enough to be selected, don’t forget your mask.
Duties that were poetically summarised by our leader, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who said “everyone is responsible for everyone.”
