Civic Officers to be used in the city to guarantee the health measures
They will be collaborating directly with the Guàrdia Urbana in a supporting role, to remind the public of and enforce the health measures established
Officers will be at the service of the public from 8 am to 7.30 pm
Because of the exceptional circumstances caused by the COVID-19 virus, and under the Mayor Decree of 14 March, the Civic Officers corps has been actively deployed as an essential service since 20 March to provide a face-to-face response to the public’s needs.
Acting in full cooperation with the Guàrdia Urbana [city police], Civic Officers are joining in with the municipal operation to remind the public of the need to avoid any travel through Barcelona that is not crucial, initially at parks and beaches.
Civic Officers will be on hand from 8 am to 7.30 pm, during which period there will be 4 shifts, to ensure the best availability of the Officers. In addition, all health measures will be in force at the Civic Officers’ work centres, equipping them with the necessary healthcare materials for carrying out their duties, such as gloves and anti-septic gel.
We are grateful to everyone making up the Civic Officers team for their collaboration; through their work, they are helping to keep the city regulated, especially at this exceptional time, and establishing themselves as an essential service in Barcelona.
