The plan of the central government developed in collaboration with neighboring countries has paid off and, next summer, the Guardia Civil and police in Portugal will form joint patrols for a few months to strengthen security in major tourist areas of the Rias Baixas, with foci of attention in places like Sanxenxo and Baiona.

The Government delegate, Santiago Villanueva, said that this collaboration between the security forces of both countries will also be developed in other areas of Spain, such as Andalucia. One of the biggest attractions of the Galician tourism in the summer months is precisely the Camino de Santiago, why some of the functions of these mixed couples is effective patrol and monitor the routes of that road.

The number of police officers from Portugal who will work in the summer months in Galicia are unknown, but their functions are very diverse; from monitoring the Camino de Santiago to preventing forest fires, and other support work units of the Civil Guard Galicia.
