The number of arrests for impersonating a police officer has dropped significantly in Ajman this year, according to a senior police official in the emirate. Col Sheikh Sultan bin Abdullah al Nuaimi, the deputy director of Ajman Police, said five people had been arrested on suspicion of committing the offence since January this year. This compares to 17 arrests for the same offence in the first half of 2009, when the problem was thought to be at its peak. He said that the problem was still a big concern to the emirate's security, bu added: "When you look at this year's cases, it's almost 70 per cent down." ykakande@thenational.ae
