How to Report Violence & Abuse Online by Dubai Police

In Dubai, you can report cases of violence or abuse by going directly to the nearest police station or by calling their emergency hotlines. Recently, the Dubai Police introduced a new way of reporting such cases: via their online platform.

Cases of violence and abuse are often sensitive issues, especially when it takes places inside the home. For some reason, the victim may be unable to leave the house or make a telephone call. Hence, the availability of an online platform could be his or her only way out.

There’s a new way to report violence and abuse cases.

Dubai Police Online Form for Violence & Abuse Cases

The Dubai Police announced the new platform through their official Twitter account. Their “tweet” contains a link to an online form, where victims or concerned persons can submit information. In response, the police themselves will be the ones to contact the said person.

Cases of violence and abuse can now be reported online.
