For those unfamiliar with the Dubai police force, they’re known for fancy things.
With a fleet that includes Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Mercedes and Camaros, Dubai’s new police SUV seems a little out of place- until you look at the kind of equipment it is packing.
Enter the Ghiath: A Chevrolet Suburban chassis that has been blessed by W Motors and outfitted with just about every bell and whistle you can imagine.
Loaded with high-tech facial recognition and license plate-reading cameras, touch-screen everything and reinforced bumpers that could shunt a tank off the road, the Ghiath is a beast that will no doubt fill in the gaps created when supercars are used as police vehicles (such as detaining individuals and performing “pit maneuvers”).
One really interesting feature is the addition of rear suicide doors, which Car Buzz believes “should allow the police to scoop up undesirables without even having to come to a full stop.”
The light kit on the Ghiath is rather extravagant, packing LED strobes in just about every part of the vehicle, making it a flashy juggernaut that will no doubt create a heavy presence in Dubai’s streets.
One of the most “progressive” Arab police agencies in the UAE, the Dubai Police Force is around 15,000 officers strong, with an insanely high standard for entry and lofty goals for the future. The Force plans on having 25% of their police force staffed by robots by the year 2030.
