Defendants at Al Barsha and Bur Dubai Police Stations will now be able to appear for hearing sessions while at the correctional facilities after the Dubai Police General HQ provided both police stations with remote trial rooms (virtual courtrooms).

The new video-conferencing feature will reduce the time and effort of employees in achieving the judicial process.

According to Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-chief of Dubai Police "apart from saving the time the “remote trial” rooms will also contribute to decrease the number of the judicial procedures from 7 to 3 steps only."

The 'remote trial' room is launched by Dubai Police Stations Council in collaboration with the Public Prosecution and Dubai Courts and is aimed at embracing digital services in the judicial system and to speed up trials.

Maj- Gen Al Marri stressed that new smart system reflects the keenness of the Dubai Police to be present on all smart platforms and to remain pioneers in the field of smart services, in order to please their customers, cut time and utilize efforts. 

"The virtual courtrooms intend to facilitate and improve services for defendants and to speed up the judicial process as part of the continuous developments in all judicial services," he added.
