Portuguese article on the Community Policing special programmes

The Guarda Nacional Republicana (GNR), constituting itself more and more as a “Human, Neighbourly and Trustworthy” security force, was obliged to reorient its policing standards, focusing on solving proactivity-oriented problems, centred on the involvement of the actual community in solving its own problems and aimed at more fragile and vulnerable social sections, thus seeking a greater citizen-security forces approximation in order to provide a more personalized and appropriate response to the concrete problems – community policing.
