Dubai Police add FJ Cruiser vehicles to their fleet



DUBAI: The Dubai Police General HQ have added a fleet of 2016 Toyota FJ Cruiser vehicles to their patrol cars' force, provided by Al-Futtaim Motors and have vowed to strengthen road presence for “better implementation of traffic rules and regulations.”

This is the second time in a space of two weeks Al Futtaim is donating cars to Dubai Police. In the first week of September, the company handed over four Toyota Prius hybrid vehicles cars – completing ten such vehicles – to the police force as contribution to a “greener transport and sustainable environment.”

The Toyota FJ Cruiser vehicles were received at the Dubai Police General HQ by the Director of Operations for Transport and Rescue, Major General Pilot Anas Al Matrooshi from the Managing Director of Toyota at Al-Futtaim Motors, Saud Abbasi.

In attendance were the Deputy Director of Operations for Transport and Rescue, Brigadier Dr Mohammed Nasser Abdul Razak Al-Razooki, the Director of Vehicle Management, Colonel Nabil Abdullah Al-Reda, Al Futtaim’s General Manager in charge of Government Relations, Health Security, Safety and Environment, Yousuf Al Raeesi among others.

Al Matrooshi indicated that the Dubai Police General HQ, through the introduction of these vehicles, aims to “increase the presence of the police force on the roads, in order to provide increased security and better implementation of traffic rules and regulations.”

Saud Abbasi hailed the working relationship between the police and Al Futtaim Motors, calling the gesture as part of the effort to “support the community, as well as increasing the safety and security of residents to a globally recognised level.”

Nice to see that at least somewhere the FJ gets the respect that it deserves. Imagine seeing a fleet in 'Anytown' USA? Aside from one-offs, never happened!

simply wait until they are 25 years old, then import away

(that is, unless you live in California, in which case you are completely screwed because you can only import a vehicle built before 1967, or if it is 25 years old then you must have a certificate from the manufacturer declaring that it met CA regulations in the year it was built, which doesn't exist for a '16, no matter how long you wait)

At least we know where to get some newer FJ's once they hit the used market! Anyone ever imported a vehicle from overseas?
3 problems:
- People rarely sell their FJs here
- CAFE - you'll have to wait 25 years
- Emissions - there's little chance of a GCC spec FJ meeting US emissions standards.
