The National Republican Guard carried out, from April 5 to 9, throughout the national territory, an operation to supervise the exercise of private security activity, in order to detect irregular situations in the performance of these functions.

In the course of the operation, the GNR Territorial Commands and the Tax Action Unit detained a person for an unlawful exercise of private security activity and detected 164, mainly:

  • 56 regarding vigilantes;
  • 46 relating to video surveillance systems;
  • 24 relating to catering establishments and beverages with dance floors;
  • 20 relating to commercial areas.

The private security activity presently plays an important role in protecting people and property and in preventing and deterring the practice of illicit acts, in a complementary and subsidiary way to the activity of the security forces.
