DUBAI: Dubai Police launched an e-Death Certificate with an aim to facilitate procedures for clients and enhance communication between police and the public, they announced on Friday. The Dubai Police General Command launched the “Issuing an electronic death certificate” service in partnership with the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and in cooperation with Dubai the Model (DTM) Centre and City Makers.

“The smart service paces with Dubai Police’s commitment to the Dubai 2021 Plan and the pivotal role in achieving the city’s Smart City strategy,” said the Artificial Intelligence Department Director, Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi.

He stressed, “Dubai Police aim to develop best AI practices and tools to serve the needs of community members, shorten time for clients, reduce required procedures and integrate government departments and bodies.”

The service depends on sending an e-death notice by the Dubai Health Authority to the Dubai Police and looking into the cause of death. If the death is unknown, the case is transferred to forensics to verify causes.

In case the death is normal, the death report shall be entered through the criminal system and a death notice sent to the deceased’s relatives, with no objection to completing the burial procedures, Al Razzouqi explained.

After the official approval, the application shall be sent to the Ministry of Health to issue the death certificate. Al Razzouqi commended the collaboration between Dubai Police and Dubai Heath Authority in launching the service.

On his part, Dr Younis Kazem the CEO of Dubai Healthcare Corporation underlined, “The move is in line with the DHA’s guidelines and strategic plans to facilitate and streamline procedures for obtaining services and minimising waiting period.”

The service’s launch enhances joint efforts between different government departments and institutions and reflects continued commitment to provide and achieve maximum response to needs and demands of clients and community members in general.
