Municipal Police “shields” Valladolid during the summer holidays

The downtown area of Valladolid is armored with a large number of municipal police officers whose goal is to provide security to visitors  during the holiday period.

According to information provided by the municipal police of Valladolid, at least 10 uniformed officers are strategically distributed at different points around the main park, where most tourists walk during their visit.

They walk in pairs on all four sides of the main square and on the street where the San Servacio temple is located, two police cars reinforce the surveillance of those who are on foot.

In addition, there are two more policemen in the corridors of the Municipal Palace and all are communicated through radio, so that they can detect any person who comes to the Plaza with the intention of commiting a crime.

A few days ago, the Safe Holidays plan (Plan Vacaciones Seguras) was announced at the gates of the Municipal Palace, along with the measures to be taken in order to guarantee the safety of visitors.

Police agents said that they are positioned in a strategic way, that in case of theft or crime “it is difficult for someone to escape”.

Emergency numbers

Visitors can call 113 or 911 from their cell phones, in case they want to report an incident or a missing child.

Noé Rodríguez Cervera, secretary of the Association of Hotels and Hostels of the city, recalled that before the holidays he held a meeting with the director of the Police, Miguel Ángel Suaste Huech, who requested that he provide all the necessary security in the downtown area in order to protect visitors, because a large number stay overnight and in the afternoons and evenings they go for a walk through the Historical Center and could become victims of some type of crime.

What is intended, as expressed by the hotel entrepreneur, is that visitors return to their places of origin with “a good impression of  Valladolid’s public safety.
