In a novel initiative, the Dubai Police have launched new colourful patrols with drawings and cartoon illustrations to communicate better with child victims of crime, media reports said today.
The patrols will help remove the psychological barrier between children and the police, Khaleej Times reported.
The patrols, launched by the police's human rights department, will also help officers carry out security awareness programmes and campaigns aimed at children, the report said.
The initiative is aimed at serving families and students.
This will be achieved by bright colourful exteriors of the patrols; children's seats in the opposite direction to the officers' so that the child is facing the police as he communicates with them; visual aids like paintings, drawings and cartoon illustrations to calm them down; and mobile entertainment devices that will let them play recreational games and read up safety awareness messages, the report said.
"The initiative is aimed at serving families and students. It will help create a child-friendly security environment," said the police in a statement.
