If you need to contact the police to report a crime, you don't have to visit a police station in person.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has launched a new online initiative allowing residents to file criminal reports, aimed at improving convenience and efficiency.

The ministry has informed residents about the option to file criminal reports online through its official smartphone app, 'MOI UAE'.

In a post on its official social media accounts, the ministry shared details of this convenient reporting method available to people in the UAE.

Here are the steps:

  • Download the ‘MOI UAE’ app and log in using your UAE Pass.
  • On the home page, scroll down and click on the ‘File criminal reports’ service.
  • Click on the add icon to create a new request. You will first see the terms and conditions for the service. Click on ‘accept’.
  • Locate the incident location on the map and click ‘Next’. You will then be asked to allow access permissions.
  • Select your preferred reporting method – writing, voice recording, video recording, or photos.
  • Enter incident details and upload the required evidence.
  • Click ‘Submit’.

This service is free of charge, and according to the app, the estimated response time is 30 minutes. The introduction of the online criminal reporting system signifies a landmark achievement in the UAE's continuous efforts to enhance public safety, empower residents, and embrace digital innovation.

By providing a user-friendly and easily accessible avenue for reporting criminal activities, the MoI aims to strengthen community partnerships and foster a society that is safer and more secure for all residents.
