The Dubai Police have called for volunteers to ride along with their mounted unit to help raise awareness in the fight against COVID-19.

Titled ‘Ride with Dubai Mounted Police Unit’, “volunteers must be physically fit, at least 21 years of age, possess official jockey apparel, and provide negative PCR test results” before joining the team.

They will be briefed about the COVID-19 safety rules before patrolling areas like Al Khawaneej, Al Warqa, Al Bada’a, Umm Suqeim, Al Barsha, City Walk, JBR, and the Boulevard.

Believing in the importance of entrenching social responsibility, #DubaiPolice invites community members to participate in raising awareness about precautionary measures against COVID-19 across the emirate of #Dubai. Be part of this voluntary initiative, & join us to maintain everyone’s safety.

The volunteers will be provided with a police vest, protective equipment and will be accompanied by a supervisor and a paramedic. 

It’s part of efforts by the authority to build community partnership.
