Ras Al Khaimah Police said it would install more than 150,000 security cameras across the UAE emirate by the end of 2019 to improve safety across the city. 

The official Twitter handle of Ras Al Khaimah Police quoted board chairman of General Resources Management in Ras Al Khaimah, HE Jamal Ahmed, as saying: “Until the end of [June 2019], over 135,780 cameras were distributed across 16,082 facilities in the emirate.”

He added that more than 4,150 engineers and technicians from 104 companies went through training courses to ensure their services were delivered in line with international standards.

Among the facilities where cameras were distributed included shops, hospitals, mosques and places of worship, hotels, residential towers, and commercial complexes.

The project is in line with the Himaya — the Arabic word for ‘protection’ — programme, launched in 2016 by Ras Al Khaimah Police.
