Dubai Police has been appointed a Solution Development Partner for DJI, allowing the former to test and deploy DJI drone technology as a tool to aid its public safety teams.
The agreement marks the giant civilian drone manufacturer’s first partnership with a police agency in the United Arab Emirates, and will provide the Dubai Police with access to new drone technologies, training and support to promote safety and security in the nation’s largest city.
“We are pleased to partner with Dubai Police to help them take advantage of DJI’s industry leading drone technology, such as the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual which is purpose-built for the public safety sector,” said Romeo Durscher, director of public safety integration at DJI. “This partnership gives Dubai Police access to DJI’s newest drone technology and fosters the exchange of experiences and knowledge that will help DJI continue to develop its portfolio for public safety agencies around the world and help them gain more value from the life-saving potential of drone technology.”
Under the agreement, Dubai Police will have custom access to DJI’s lineup of hardware and software solutions including DJI drones, the DJI Flight Simulator for pilot training, DJI FlightHub for drone fleet management and mission planning, as well as DJI AeroScope to help aid in the identification and remediation of unauthorised drone activity.
“This partnership is set to boost cooperation, exchange experiences, share information and knowledge between both sides in the field of unmanned aerial systems,” said H.E Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander in Chief of Dubai Police. “It reflects the keenness of Dubai Police to bring Drones into the different police sectors, which helps promote safety and security in the city by utilizing the latest tools and systems.”
