Dubai Fights Crime In Style

Dubai police with Ferrari
The Dubai Police force has been showing off the latest luxury super car to join its fleet.
The arrival of the Ferrari FF, or Ferrari Four, follows the addition of a Chevrolet and Lamborghini earlier this month.
The Italian sports car, which has a top speed of 208 mph, will be used for patrolling the tourist areas of the city.

The vehicle arrives hot on the heels of a Lamborghini that has already joined the city state's crime-fighting ranks.
The car - sporting the green and white of Dubai Police - was unveiled at the foot of the Burj al-Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

It will be used by women police to patrol tourist areas.
The introduction of luxury Italian cars to the police force is being seen as a sign of economic recovery in the Gulf emirate where a housing bubble burst in 2008.
In Dubai, petrol is generally cheaper than drinking water, and authorities face significant challenges to curb road accidents caused by speeding.
Last year, official figures put road deaths at 122, with 2,161 injuries, many of which occurred on the emirate's notorious Sheikh Zayed highway.-
