The PSP will reinforce policing in busy tourist areas of the country as part of their summer operation in force until 30 September.

In a statement, the PSP said that the operation will take place in mainland Portugal and in all the Autonomous Regions of Madeira and the Azores.

“Although we are still in a pandemic context, it is expected that with the opening of the bathing season there will be a greater flow of people and vehicles to bathing areas, as well as increased traffic on the main roads and a greater number of users of public transport, especially those that serve the bathing areas”, says the PSP.

Therefore, PSP will concentrate its operational capacity in order to increase the feeling of security in bathing areas, residential, tourist and commercial areas and main roads.

The PSP will also monitor compliance with the measures in force under the covid-19 pandemic.
