The director of the Suspects and Criminal Phenomena Department at the Dubai Police, Brigadier Ali Salem Al Shamsi, stated on Wednesday that the majority of the individuals who violated the law came to the country on a visit visa in order to make quick money by taking advantage of the goodwill of other people.

Dubai Police issued directives to the general public to combat the practice of begging.

Out of compassion, Al Shamsi strongly recommended that the general public avoid interacting with people who are allegedly beggars. They were advised to call the number 901 or use the 'Police Eye' service on the Dubai Police smart app in order to report any criminal activity or begging that they discovered. He emphasized that donations should be given to charity institutions that are registered and reputable in order to guarantee that their contributions will be sent to those who are in need and not to questionable persons or groups.
