Do foreigners get a chance to enlist as well? One year contract as a police driver is all that I crave now. Will work for mere food and shelter. But on the highway the police as it is are very strict and with those cameras all over, I wonder why they need them except as a style statement to show off.

Why I couldn't be a police officer in dubai? Jokes apart, is this SS or base variant of Camaro? Are these cars donated by GM or purchased by Dubai police? Well, any car it may be or any way they got these, damn those lucky police fellas! Wonder till where these criminals could run there?

P.S. There is already a thread for this http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/international-automotive-scene/1138-ultimate-cop-cars-police-cars-around-world.html.

Hi S@ndy,These are Camaro SS 6.2L,V8,.Its unrestricted.
The car was Summit white with Orange Stripes.The stripes have been redone at St Josephs Ad agency Dubai to match the Dubai police color.They have also been upgraded with Collision Alert System,Speed Detector,Radar Detector Frequency Match and Live Traffic Feed.They also have been chip tuned, but I cant comment how much Horsepower they produce.
The cars werent donated by GM, but was sold by myself from our showroom in SZR DXB .

Exactly! When they release a car the whole world is talking about it, and when we do it hardly anyone knows about it.

Look at the first policeman from left. I thought pot belly officers were our national treasure.

sajusherief, come on give them a break, they would be basically a COP with a desk job [I am not a cop in dubai...not that lucky,bro].

But one things true, the Dubai police live a dream that every petrolhead dreams of... driving awesome cars and not have to worry about a ticket .

They got Nissan XTerra, Mercs, BMW, Dodge Chargers..like everybody says 'BEING A COP IN DUBAI AIN'T BAD NOW'. But the way people drive around here, even a modified cop car would bite the dust here.

The traffic sense in Dubai seems too good to be true. I mean in an accident, both party's park their cars to the side and stay there till the COPS arrive. In India, the same party's would have had a boxing match and gone their seperate ways.

Dubai police also have Dodge Charger. Looks awesome, always reminds me of Fast 5 movie

Apart from Dodge Charger, Dubai Police have BMW 5 series, Merc E class, TLC Prado, Dodge Durango, Kia Mohave, Ford Explorer, Ford Taurus, Nissan Xterra, Nissan Pathfinder and so on. These are the ones that come to my mind quickly

AbuDhabi cops are more privileged, they have Nissan GTR

I remember seeing a Corvette in Dubai Civil Defense livery of yellow and red

Luxury Ferrari sports car will join Dubai Police patrol fleet.

Dubai: After Lamborghini, another luxury sports car, Ferrari, will be added to the Dubai Police patrol fleet this week.

Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief, said on Monday that Dubai is a unique city and everything in it should reflect its uniqueness and for that reason police will add a Ferrari sports car to its patrol fleet.

Lt Gen Dahi added that the exclusive vehicle, the price of which exceeds Dh2 million, will enter service by the end of this week to confirm Dubai as magnificent and extravagant in all the services it provides.

He said Dubai Police is on of the few police forces in the world which has such cars in its security patrol service.

He said police received an amazing reaction from the public when the Lamborghini police cars hit the roads in Downtown Dubai so they decided to add the Ferrari to their fleet as well. “These sports cars will not be roaring and chasing speeding motorists,” he explained.

“They will be used for roads security in different areas of Dubai,” he said.

Last week police added the Lamborghini police patrols to its fleet. The new cars will be used to keep order on the streets in high-end areas like Burj Khalifa, Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard and Jumeirah Beach Residence.

Another sports car has become part of the Dubai Police fleet as have deployed Chevy Camaro sports cars on the emirate’s highways. Police said the Ferrari sports cars will be on the roads soon.

“Dubai Police are working on updating the police patrol cars to enhance security on the roads in accordance with highest international standards and technical developments,” said Lt Gen Dahi.
