They would be under the supervision of the Tourist Security Department of the Dubai Police. The launch of the cars was attended by South Korea General Consul, members of the Dubai Police Council and a number of government officials.
Dubai’s police chief, Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, said that the police force earlier launched other luxury sports police patrol vehicles. Cars from Aston Martin, Bentley, Mercedes joined the fleet during the Arabian Travel Market (ATM), in addition to the two models of Ferrari which were launched previously. The luxury sports car fleet also has cars from Lamborghini, Nissan, Bugatti, Volkswagen and BMW. The policemen handling these vehicles have been given special training from professional drivers.
