To promote safety, especially around water bodies, the police advise against entering restricted swimming areas and stress the importance of constant supervision of children near water. It is crucial not to leave children unattended at any time. For those using jet skis, Sharjah Police urge caution, advising operators to avoid swimming areas and wear life jackets at all times for safety.

Sharjah Police also warned against an increase in unauthorised begging and informal, unsanctioned slaughtering services offered in private homes during the holiday season.

Residents are advised to secure their homes during travel, particularly during this peak summer period. This includes turning off electrical devices and ensuring all potential fire hazards are addressed.

Sharjah Police urge the public to report any suspicious activities or disturbances affecting community security through their official channels at or by contacting 80040, 999, or 901.
