Dubai Police K9 Unit Conducted 2,830 Missions Last Year

The Dubai Police K9 Unit carried out 2,830 missions in 2021, including 879 special missions to secure Expo 2020 Dubai before and after the grand opening.
The missions consisted of 1,321 security checks, 542 COVID-19 screenings, 480 guard duties, 381 security patrols, 53 anti-drug operations, 30 lead tracking, 20 raids, and 11 fire detections.
Major Salah Khalifa Al Mazrouei, Director of Dubai Police Security Inspection K9 Unit, highlighted that the unit operates with 63 professional trainers and 73 canines of six different breeds. These include German Shepherds, Dutch Shepherds, Malinois dogs, English Springers, Labrador Retrievers, and Cocker Spaniels.
“German and Dutch Shepherds and Malinois dogs handle guarding duties, lead tracking and detection of all kinds as they are known for being more resilient. On the other hand, English Springer, Labrador Retriever, and Cocker Spaniel specialise in recovering hidden narcotics and explosives, searching for missing persons, and tracking possessions and flaming materials,” said Maj. Al Mazrouei.
He added: “During their years of service, K9s undergo medical check-ups and performance tests to determine their capabilities to conduct police work. If Dubai Police veterinarians or canines’ trainers provide reasons for necessary retirement, the dogs are placed for adoption under certain conditions.”
