Police on duty in the desert to protect dune adventurers


With Rub’ Al Khali, the world’s largest sand desert, on our doorstep, exploring the local landscape comes with its own set of dangers.

It’s with this in mind that Abu Dhabi Police has established a sand patrol to safeguard tourists and visitors while they explore the dunes.

The initiative, established during the Dhafra Festival, will patrol sandy and desert areas, to ensure the safety of those camping in the desert or participating in safaris.

The patrol will use communications technology to locate visitors, as well as provide assistance in areas inhabited by wildlife.
