Abu Dhabi Police Fulfill Special Child’s Birthday Wish

The Abu Dhabi Police fulfilled the birthday wish of a 10-year-old child of determination. The little boy wanted to spend his special day in a police patrol. Abu Dhabi police granted his wish by letting him spend his special occasion in a police patrol. In a Facebook post, Abu Dhabi police mentioned that the command and control centre received a call from the boy’s mother.

She mentioned that the boy wanted to spend his birthday in a police patrol, and have a new experience. Officials from the department of Security Media in Al Ain visited the boy’s home and let him accompany the patrol.

The family thanked the police for making the child happy and appreciated the police for their efforts in keeping residents safe.

Meanwhile, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, approved a new law on National safety. The law guarantees the protection in case of disasters, healthcare, as well as economic and environmental threats.

During the meeting, the cabinet also hosted a group of frontliners to thank them for their tireless efforts.

What Else?

Earlier, the Dubai Police turned heroes for little Ruby. The lockdown turned specifically hard for Stephanie Hamilton, when she had to take Ruby on a bike ride to calm her down. Hamilton’s daughter Ruby has a down syndrome and is autistic.

The parents were seeking permission to take their daughter on a bike ride to pacify her, which would have otherwise made her extremely unhappy. Initially, the Dubai Police rejected the plea. Later, they discovered the plea was applied under the wrong category. The couple then tweaked the permit settings to “personal” followed by “emergency”. They even added a note-“exercise for person of determination” against the reason for emergency.

Meanwhile, a kind-hearted soul had already tagged Dubai Police on the same post on her Instagram account. This led to a prompt response from the Dubai Police, one of whom immediately called Hamilton. They clarified to the couple that they need to mention their ‘reasons’ clearly, without merely asking for an emergency permit. The couple was then granted an-hour-long permit, which left Ruby thrilled!

In her FB post Stephanie urges that it would be great to have a visual indicator to help identify such people. This will also help to understand that such residents are not violators but have stepped out due to compelling reasons.
