The Director General of Police Operations at the Sharjah Police General Headquarters, Brigadier Ahmed Haji Al Serkal, stressed the leadership's keenness to combat begging with the approach of the blessed month of Ramadan, especially as the phenomenon spreads during the holy month, as the police allocated a team of its members to end the phenomenon of begging.

Al Serkal told Emirates Today that begging is one of the behaviors that are active during the holy month of Ramadan, and on various occasions, because it is associated with the meanings of spending, mercy and competition for giving and giving, so these groups beg people's sympathy in different ways and tricks, and obtain money.

The head of the team to control beggars and street vendors in Sharjah Police, Lt. Col. Jassim Mohammed bin Tali'a, called on members of the public to actively contribute to the elimination of these behaviors out of social responsibility, by donating through charities and institutions officially approved by government agencies, and cooperating with the security services to immediately report beggars.

On the other hand, the Director of the Electronic Services and Communications Department, Colonel Nasser bin Afsan, revealed the completion of the installation of 65,799 cameras distributed on all public roads and vital facilities in the emirate, covering 85% of the area of Sharjah, and the addition of 21,<> cameras during the last six months.

According to the director of the Comprehensive Police Stations Department, Colonel Youssef bin Harmul, thefts topped the crimes committed in industrial zones last year.
