ABU DHABI – The Private Security Business Department at the UAE’s Ministry of Interior has developed a smart bag to transport money with multiple locks that allows electronic registry and tracking, providing the best security services according to international standards.

According to Lt Colonel Saeed Obaid Al Shamsi, Director of the Private Security Business Department, security workers and officials, including specialists from the Ministry of Interior, can track the movements of money transport operations in real-time by tracking the smart bags from the operations room.

The bag is also special for its strength and its resistance to penetration and collisions, making it difficult for criminals to open the bags due to the presence of smart electronic locks.

The innovative bag has many features, including GPS tracking and an “RFID” system. It also has a smart sound alarm that goes off in case of attacks, with the added feature of sending warning alerts to the operations room.

“The department is working on updating its work systems, in coordination with its partners, and applying the ideas that contribute to strengthening the protection of the community and their belongings,” Al Shamsi was quoted by WAM news agency as saying.
