“A governmental action that also does not forget the rejuvenation of the human capital of our security forces, insofar as only in this way will it be possible for them to maintain high levels of readiness”, said José Luís Carneiro.

In this sense, the minister said that the “rejuvenation effort” of the security forces will allow the reception of more than 1,600 GNR officers during the year, “after the more than 3,100 already recruited and trained since 2015”.

In his speech, the official also guaranteed that it is the Government's commitment to “do everything to continue to provide” the GNR “with adequate means” to fulfil their mission, continuing “everything that has been done through the Law”.
