The Transportation Security Department of Dubai Police (TSD) said it has signed a MoU with Etihad Rail - the developer and operator of the UAE’s national railway network - in bid to enhance and develop cooperation in common areas of work in a way that helps the public.
The MoU outlines cooperation in the fields of securing and protecting Etihad Rail facilities in Dubai and reduce potential security risks as well as enhancing the safety of passengers, stated Brigadier Obaid Al Habthoor, Director of the TSD, after signing the deal with Mohammed Al Marzouqi, Executive Director of the Rail Affairs Sector at Etihad Rail, in the presence of senior officials.
Al Habthoor also stressed the importance of establishing active communication, cooperation and connection between Dubai Police and different government and non-government bodies to realise and serve joint interests and to enhance the emirate’s safety and security.
Etihad Rail was established in June 2009 under Federal Law No. 2, with the mandate to manage the development, construction and operation of the UAE’s national freight and passenger railway network.
The railway network will link the principal centres of population and industry of the UAE and will form a vital part of the planned railway network across the GCC.-
