Here is a message from the Guardia Civil Traffic 


We represent a group of Guardia Civil traffic police who have set up an information page on Facebook,  "N332", and an accompanying website,

The idea was to provide accurate information to foreign drivers as to both the rules of the road here in Spain, as well as changes to the law that they may not be aware of, in addition to important advice about driving and road use in general.

Already, our Facebook page has been phenomenally successful, reaching over 7,000 followers in a matter of weeks. We try to answer as many questions as we can on Facebook, but as you can imagine, as we are approaching 8,000 followers now, it is becoming increasingly difficult to answer everybody, especially as many of the questions are the same. That is why we set up the website, as a catalogue of the articles for easier reference.

The reason for contacting with you is to see if there is any way in which we can collaborate to help spread the information we produce, and we are also happy to share any information you make public in terms of press releases and advice, so please add us to your press mailing list also.

AlertCops Mobile Phone Application

To improve the citizen response times and the information process -  AlertCops Mobile Telephone Application

If you live in Spain or you are thinking of coming here on vacation you should have this app. (Please, share it among your friends).

What is AlertCops?

AlertCops is a citizen security alert system of the State Law Enforcement Authorities (FFCCSE in Spanish)

The goal is to create a universal access to every public citizen security service, so any person, regardless their language, origin or auditory or vocal disability, can send to the State Law Enforcement Authorities (Police and Civil Guard) an alert about a crime or security incident whether they are victims or witnesses of such.

Once the registration process is completed and the access validated by a code that will be sent via SMS to the mobile phone number provided, the application will show a home screen with the following options, which may be selected by clicking the corresponding icon:

This service allows a citizen to send an alert from a mobile device 'smartphone' straight to the police bodies in a simple an intuitive manner, so they can be assisted quickly and efficiently.

AlertCops' benefits are:

To offer a new communication channel between citizens and the FFCCSE, in addition to the already existing

To provide foreigners, visiting or living in our country, with a channel in their own language to access to the security emergency services

To speed up the information and response demand protocol, obtaining the support seeker's information from the very beginning, such as: location, type of incident or any other relevant information

To guarantee the accessibility to these services to people with communication disabilities.

How do I install it?

Go to the app store for apple or play store for Android and type in search AlertCops to download the new free app or click on this link

How does it work?

This gives you more information

or just go to the main web which you can view in English

I have checked the app and it certainly looks to be very useful for instant access for any incident whether it be robbery, vandalism, violence, sexual, group harassment, fighting,missing persons etc.

You need to enter your details to register and the test to make it active.

Please recommend to your friends and anyone who you think will benefit.
