According to the revealed tax documents of 2012 the UAE gave 1,000,000 dollars to the New York City Police Foundation. The filed records show that the same amount of money was transferred to the NYPD Intelligence Division's International Liaison Program by the Foundation, that is described as a gift.

The spokesperson of the Foundation advised that, "The gift was directed to upgrade NYPD equipment and facilities used to aid in criminal investigations throughout New York City."

The UAE Embassy abstained from comments on the subject.
