Dubai Police Museum The Dubai Police Museum located in the police headquarters, opened to the public for the first time on November 19, 1987, highlighting the history of the force since it was established in 1956. Although a fire ripped through the previous building of the museum in 2006, a majority of the historical artefacts were rescued.
The Museum was reopened on February 2, 2008.
Major General Abdul Rahman Mohammad Rafi, director of the General Department of Community Services at Dubai Police, said that in April 1995 the International Council of Museums decided, at a meeting in Jordan, to add the Dubai Police Museum to the record of Arab Museums.
Major General Rafi said the museum houses the largest and heaviest computer, which the first computer to be imported by Dubai Police from abroad. One can see in the museum old and new photographs; weapons and tools used by police in the past; in addition to old and new weapons and a collection of anti-riot devices; tools and equipment used in police stations.
One can also see on display the different ways followed by police in combating drug crimes, handicraft such as boats and sculptures made by prisoners at the Punitive Establishment in Dubai and educational traffic campaigns conducted by the Dubai police since 1984.
e added the photograph of the first Dubai policeman is presented in the museum, as well as the first police circular issued 42 years ago.
The three halls of the museum display some unique and rare items, including early communication devices and the first police logo.
At the entrance of the first hall, on the walls on the right and left, are photographs documenting the phases of the history of Dubai police.
It also includes the names of the events, including coverage of events and royal decrees and resolutions.
Notably, the Royal Decree of the appointment of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum as Chairman of the Police and Public Security, in Dubai in 1968. There is also a further decree on the appointment of Sheikh Ahmad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, as Vice-Chairman of the Police and Public Security, in Dubai in 1997.
He explained that the display in the hall also includes photographs of the events that commemorate significant achievements of the Dubai police, such as graduation ceremonies.
The late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum made certain to attend those ceremonies in order to tile the graduates with badges and emblems. Some of those badges were for different kind of actions while some were in the areas of moral incentives in return for loyalty to work and sacrifice, as the Order of Courage that is given to individuals who are injured or assaulted during their duty.
It also includes a special section on the police in the GCC; such as old military uniforms, old and modern, various types of decorations and medals, photographs, logos and brochures.
Another hall is allocated for Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, the Deputy Chairman of Police and General Security and the former Dubai Police Chief. It includes the decree by which he was appointed as the chief of Dubai Police, and gifts presented to him.

He was also awarded the Gold Pin on April 4, 2007, from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, which is the highest decoration granted to the first military figure.
The Golden Jubilee hall includes images that cover the festivities in Dubai to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the Dubai police. This anniversary showcases the achievements of the Dubai Police, at all levels: local or regional, Arab or international.
Visitors get the chance to familiarise themselves with the historic sequence of the formations of successive leaders of the Dubai police commanders and officers and their military ranks.

Some old communication tools such as the first telegraph machine, first marine radar used at the port and several other wireless communication devices are also on display in hall one.
The centre of attraction is the first computer used by the Dubai Police. Despite its large size, it was the latest technology then and it made Dubai police one of the best equipped in the region.
