The Spanish Police hosted a delegation of four senior officers from the Palestinian Civil Police / Special Police Force (SPF) to share innovative new perspectives on tactics and operating procedures, in particular methods to keep citizens safe during mass events such as demonstrations and sporting fixtures.

During the five-day visit, the Palestinian delegation, headed by Brigadier General Medhat Hijjo, were introduced to the strategic planning methodologies and procedures as well as the Command and Control system used by the Guardia Civil (GC), a law enforcement institution that is regularly cited by Spaniards in opinion polls as one of the country’s most trusted.

The event was funded by the European Commission’s Instrument for Technical Assistance and Information Exchange (TAIEX).
