The Dubai Events Security Committee (ESC) has finalized preparations to secure events, tourist areas and key locations in the emirate during the Eid Al Adha holiday.

The plan was developed in collaboration with 55 government and private sector partners.

“Security measures include protecting mosques and major places of prayer, deploying patrols on main roads, tourist areas, shopping centers and open markets,” said Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, Deputy Operations Commander of Dubai Police and Chairman of the ESC.

He added that the Dubai Traffic Police Department and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will jointly coordinate efforts to reduce traffic jams and ensure smooth traffic flow.

Al Ghaithi advised the public to call 901 for non-emergency situations, dial 999 for emergencies and use the “Police Eye” service on the Dubai Police app to report any violations or concerns.

He also urged motorists to respect speed limits and called on jet ski users to avoid busy family areas on beaches.

Child safety

Parents are advised to closely supervise their children on beaches, swimming pools and other public places.


Al Ghaithi warned against the use of fireworks and allowing children to play with fireworks due to the risk of injuries, burns as well as the risk of fires threatening lives and goods.

Work areas

The ESC, in collaboration with the Council of Police Station Directors, the Positive Mind Council and the Labor Committee, has allocated recreational areas in workers’ accommodation.

“Various sports and entertainment events will be organized during Eid to bring joy and share the festive spirit with workers,” Al Ghaithi said.
