Dubai Police uses horses to patrol streets and enforce stay-home order


To make sure every resident in the emirate is safe, Dubai Police is patrolling on streets, not on super cars but on horses!

The horses are spotted patrolling the streets of Al Aweer in Dubai to enforce stay-home order.

According to Captain Dhahi Al Jallaf, Dubai Mounted Police, some places in the emirate are not accessible by cars and have narrow roads.

He told The National that they make sure that the residents roaming around the emirate have permit from the Dubai Police.

“If anyone goes out without any permission, we have to take the Emirates ID and we have to find the person because he is not following the rules,” he added.

A total of 16 pair of horses are roaming around Dubai from 6pm to 6am.
