Dubai Police, Riverbed Partner to Drive Technological Innovation in IT Services and Infrastructure
The Dubai Police has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), extending its relationship with Riverbed Technology to a broader spectrum in the field of development and upgrade of both applications and infrastructure. Riverbed will now focus on the introduction of new and innovative technical solutions, while ensuring on-going knowledge transfer and proper training to Dubai Police staff. The IT vendor will, in addition, constantly share new ideas and expertise in line with the Artificial Intelligence strategic drive of Dubai Police.
Brigadier Khalid AlRazooqi, General Director of Artificial Intelligence Department and CIO, at Dubai Police said, “Our objective is to be the best police force in the world and for this we are keen to implement cutting-edge solutions, particularly in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning.”
Towards the end of 2017, Riverbed invited Dubai Police’s IT team to its headquarters and provided a clear overview of the company’s solution portfolio and vision. “We were highly impressed by this visit and our excellent experience and relationship with their Middle East team. Having MoUs with key technology partners from around the world, such as Riverbed, gives us the confidence that we will achieve our goals,” Brigadier AlRazooqi added.
Dubai Police is already working with Riverbed on a number of projects and the company is set to play a key role in helping the police force establish revolutionary IT applications for internal staff as well as for engagement and delivery of services to citizens of the Emirate.
Jerry M. Kennelly, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Riverbed, who was invited to Dubai by Dubai Police for the MoU signing ceremony said, “The Dubai Police is taking the lead in embracing futuristic technologies in line with the Smart Dubai 2021 Plan, which seeks to transform the Emirate into a fully-fledged future-ready smart city. We are honoured to partner with the Police agency and assure them of Riverbed’s ongoing commitment and support.”
Dubai Police Force was established on June 01, 1956, and was based in "Naif Fort," as its Headquarters, until the year 1973 when it was moved to the current location. "Naif Fort" was transformed, later, into one of Dubai Police Stations.
We, Dubai Police, are proud to be an Arab modern police establishment with a force of more than fifteen thousand employees who are characterized by their degrees of high-level multi specialties and training. We are also proud to be one of the best security institutions, at all levels; locally, regionally, and globally.
