A smart system powered by artificial intelligence has helped the Dubai Police arrest 550 people in 2018, it was announced on Saturday. Of these, 109 were ‘wanted’ criminals, while 441 were suspects in different crimes.

The ‘smart area’ system helped decrease the number of ‘disturbing crimes’ from 25 reported in 2017 to one this year.

Major-General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, assistant commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police for criminal investigation, said that the project is equipped with “state of the art smart tools to reduce crime rates”.

He added that the police are working to implement its ‘safe city’ strategy using artificial intelligence and cameras that can identify faces and vehicle plate numbers.
