This is a great chance for finding a great job dedicated to the protection of people or property.

You can surely find this a rewarding career with good pay. For wages (salaries, bonuses and allowances), the Federal Decree No. (40) of 2008 gives an idea of the amount of income both police and security force staff members in the UAE can earn.
In September of 2015, the Oxford Strategic Consulting conducted a survey of Emirati nationals on their opinions pertaining to employment in the UAE; the report (UAE Employment Report: Insights for 2016) showed that one of the three organizations these respondents would like to work for is the General Command of Police (29%). “Males were significantly more likely than females to want to work for organizations related to defense and security,” (43% vs. 15%). The police in the UAE, however, has worked hard on the inclusion of women in this sector. In contrast to other Arab police forces, the Dubai Police Force (DPF) provides for equal and fair job prospects to Emiratis (and robots!) for a workforce today more diverse.
Also at the Dubai Police Academy, more women are finally training. All candidates train with “daily sessions and lectures on the law and the role of the police, as well as how to handle firearms,” explains The National; after graduating from the six-month program cadets have a chance to serve their country. “The academy is in no way just for men,” said Col Ghaith Al Suwaidi, the academy’s director. “We put a lot of focus on the women enrolled in the institution, because they have been part of the academy since its establishment in 1987.” Since 2016, there’s also an “All-Women Police Squad in Dubai” to guard the emirate’s markets. The plan is for the all-female force to combat theft and fraud in the areas to ensure the citizens’ safety, reports emirateswoman.com.
Dubai Police is often looking for new talents to supplement its forces. Brigadier Ahmad Mohammad Rafei, director of the Human Resources Department at Dubai Police told how 14 Emiratis were hired within the first hour of Careers UAE back in 2016, noting that “of the 14, 12 applicants had completed their national service and two were Emirati job seekers.” He said that Dubai Police had, at the time, 153 vacancies for people looking to work at Dubai Police.
