The National Republican Guard (GNR), in partnership with CTT – Correios de Portugal, will distribute throughout the national territory 50,000 magnets to help remind the elderly, to adopt security procedures in order not to be victims of crime, particularly violent situations, such as scams, thefts and robberies in their homes.

Many of these people live alone and or in isolated locations.

The high visibility magnetic card the size of a name card, also contains the details of the local GNR and makes it easier, in emergency cases, to contact them.

This is important in supporting and providing security reassurance for this age group.
