Dubai Police have praised a child after he found and returned a tourist’s lost watch. Muhammad Ayan Younis found the timepiece in a tourist area and handed it to Dubai Police to ensure it was returned to its rightful owner.

Dubai Police verified that the watch belonged to a tourist who had previously reported it lost and had since returned to his homeland and contacted the individual to successfully return the watch.

Brigadier Khalfan Obeid Al Jallaf, Director of the Tourist Police Department, along with his deputy, Lieutenant Colonel Muhammad Abdul Rahman, and Captain Shahab Al Saadi, Head of the Tourist Happiness Section, presented the child with an award in recognition of his admirable action.

Brigadier Al Jallaf highlighted that the child's behaviour reflects the moral standards and security prevalent in the UAE, particularly within its vital tourism sector.

Al Jallaf encouraged community members to take inspiration from Muhammad Ayan Younis's example of honesty and utilise the smart lost and found services available at the Smart Police Stations (SPS) to return found items, easing the process of reconnecting lost properties with their owners.
