The order, signed on October 28, renews the authorisation to use the system composed of 11 cameras, for a period of three years.

The renovation was requested by the general commander of the National Republican Guard, and the system responsible for its management is the GNR Territorial Detachment of Tomar, operating 24 hours a day, every day of the week.

According to the order, “whenever there is a situation of concrete danger for the safety of people and property, sound capture and recording is allowed” and “the cameras must be directed so as not to capture and not record images in the places more reserved for prayer, such as the interior of churches, chapels and places of devotion”.

“Private areas must be barred, preventing the visualization of, in particular, doors, windows and balconies”, while the use of hidden cameras is not allowed.

All operations must be registered and “registration reports must report all anomalies detected and must be archived for a minimum period of two years”.
