Abstract:Dubai, a port city of the United Arab Emirates in the Gulf, is policed by the Dubai Police Force (DPF). Also known as the Eastern gate of the Gulf States, this coastal city faces security threats like:

  1. Geographical: DPF has to oversee the coastal city with an area of roughly 4 Km2 and a coastline of about 700 Km.
  2. Emigration: Mass emigration from the region, given the high population density, low national income and scarce job opportunities in the neighbouring countries. This can be considered as the centrifugal force engulfing the city.
  3. Immigration: Dubai is a labour magnet due to its high national income, low population density and abundant job opportunities. High immigration acts as centripetal force and poses a grave security threat.

In the wake of increasing legal and illegal immigration, coupled with the resultant high population density, a cultural change is inevitable in the city. Currently, Dubai is populated with an assortment of people with different cultures, values and languages. DPF has to counter these forces by evolving and adopting quality policing towards offering better services to the public.
