Fancy yourself as a bit of a detective?
Dubai Police have created a mock crime scene at The Dubai Mall for you to test your powers of deduction this weekend.
Reckon you could rattle off a couple of apt one liners after finding a clue, like CSI Miami’s Horatio Caine? You’ve got from Thursday to Saturday to give it a try (16th-18th August).
Probably because they’re more likely to have watched all of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, young people especially are being asked to turn super sleuths. However old you are, Major General Rashid Hamdan Al Ghafari, Chairman of Dubai Police Academy, says would-be detectives need to use “professional thinking” and should “link evidence and draw conclusions” to solve the crime.
The winners will receive prizes and a visit to the General Directorate of Criminal Evidence and Criminology at Dubai Police.
Pro tip for all you would be Marples and Poirots out there, Sherlock Holmes always used to say “eliminate the impossible and whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” If the truth is that you’re not in Downtown Dubai this weekend, then the crime scene theatre has already been at Mirdif City Centre and could be coming to a mall near you very soon.
Free. Friday 2pm-12am (10th August only). City Centre Mirdif. 04 602 3000.
