The Ajman Police of the UAE announced the launch of its first set of non-fungible tokens within a framework of the UAE’s institutions’ keenness to tap into the metaverse and its related technologies.

The Ajman Police’s NFT collection consists of 200 digital collectibles, which are dedicated to employees, consumers, and partners.

The announcement came during a meeting, chaired by Commander-in-Chief of Ajman Police Sheikh Sultan bin Abdullah Al Nuaimi with Director of the Strategy and Performance Development Department Ali Obaid Al Shamsi, Head of the Innovation Team Muhammad Shaiban Suwaidan, and a number of members of the innovation team in the police, in addition to CEO of the company Faisal Financial Technologies Faisal Obaid Buafra. The meeting discussed deploying and using NFTs in government work in line with the UAE strategy for innovation.

In this regard, Suwaidan pointed out that the Ajman Police is committed to increasingly involve in the Web 3.0 world and its relevant technologies after the debut of its metaverse.

The Ajman Police has become the first police force in the world to offer its services through virtual avatars in the metaverse.

Through the metaverse, users can communicate with Ajman police officers via avatars in the virtual world.
