Residents can now check their criminal status in financial cases in Dubai, thanks to a new service by Dubai Police, an official said on Thursday.
Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, director of the Artificial Intelligence Department at Dubai Police, said that people can log on to their website to use the free-of-charge service.
“Residents can check their criminal status in financial cases registered in police stations in Dubai. The service will cut time and effort in getting information regarding any cases against them. People can also download the Dubai Police smart app and enjoy the service,” Brigadier Al Razooqi said.
The Dubai Police said that residents can also check if they have a travel ban due to financial cases, using the new service.
“People should benefit from Dubai Police’s electronic services. It’s part of our strategy in implementing smart and unique services to the public, for better customer service,” he added.
The service, provided by the Criminal Investigation Department, requires a valid Emirates ID to use the service.
