Policing the Royal Visit

 

 

 

POLICING THE ROYAL VISIT

 

During the Royal visit from 7th – 9th June, many additional security arrangements will be in place around Gibraltar with specially-trained Project Servator officers being deployed at various locations.  

Some of the security arrangements will be immediately obvious to members of the public (additional police officers, military personnel, CCTV cameras, etc) but other important measures will be less visible. 

Next week, in particular, members of the public can assist the RGP by reporting anything that does not look right or seem right.  Anyone with any concerns is asked to report their observations to New Mole House on 20072500 (199 in an emergency) or via the website on www.police.gi/report-online  

As part of the Royal visit programme, the following arrangements will be in place:
