18 Nov Dubai Police train hundreds of security guards to manage traffic
Dubai Police have trained hundreds of private security guards to deal with traffic accidents and traffic flow.
Several training workshops ensured that the guards are qualified in dealing with minor traffic accidents, in a bid to save time and effort for motorists and emergency services. In total, the police hosted 16 training workshops for 15 private security companies helping 300 security guards to learn essential traffic management and safety skills.
Last year, the police organised 16 training sessions on traffic safety and management for 16 private security companies, benefiting 466 guards.
The learnings come as Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police, honoured guards and security company officials for cooperating with the police in managing traffic. They helped ensure smooth traffic flow at Dubai’s commercial centres, schools, hotels, residential communities, and event venues.
