Hu­man traf­fick­ing app launched

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Dubai Po­lice have launched a new app for vic­tims of hu­man traf­fick­ing and forced labour that they say will al­low peo­ple to dis­creetly con­tact of­fi­cers for help. The force’s Hu­man Traf­fick­ing Crimes Mon­i­tor­ing Cen­tre is rolling out the app. The user en­ters their con­tact de­tails, lo­ca­tion and sets out the type of help they need. They will then get a con­fir­ma­tion mes­sage stat­ing that an of­fi­cer will in­ves­ti­gate the case. Bri­gadier Dr Mo­hammed Murr, Di­rec­tor of the Gen­eral De­part­ment for Hu­man Rights, said: “The ser­vice will help hu­man traf­fick­ing vic­tims to re­port through the smart ap­pli­ca­tion. And po­lice can reach out and pro­vide them with as­sis­tance, in­clud­ing le­gal sup­port.” Hu­man traf­fick­ing vic­tims can also email htccc@dubaipo­lice.gov.ae or call 800 5005.
