These statistics were revealed during the Operations Department performance appraisal meeting, headed by the Dubai Police Commander-in-Chief, Lt. Gen.

Officials of Dubai Police' Command and Control Centre said that during the third quarter of 2019, Dubai Police's emergency hotline 999 received 2,447,646 calls compared to 2,615,826 calls received during the same period last year. Moreover, the total number of calls answered within 10 seconds were 2,276,659 calls in comparison to 2,588,863 calls during the same period the year before, thus achieving 97 percent on the emergency response indicator for answering emergency calls within 10 seconds.

Meanwhile, the average time for police patrols to reach emergency scenes was only 4.34 minutes where the targeted response time was eight minutes. Similarly, the average time for police patrols to reach non-emergency scenes was 12.32 minutes during the same period where the targeted response time was 30 minutes.
