Police on flying bikes to patrol Dubai by 2020 | Local | News

Dubai's media office said the police force hopes to introduce the vehicles into service by 2020.

Dubai Police have started training two officers on flying motorcycles with a view to introducing the vehicles into service by 2020.

The futuristic step forward in policing was confirmed by Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, director of the Artificial Intelligence Department at Dubai Police, who said the hoverbike will be used in policing work across the city.

They have a maximum speed of 60m/h (96km/h) and go up to 16 feet (4.8 metres) into the air.

“We have two crews already training to use the hoverbike and we will increase the number. The vehicle will be used by 2020 in first-responder roles because of its ability to access hard-to-reach locations,” Brigadier Al Razooqi told Gulf News.
