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. To this extent, in an anticipatory attitude, special programmes have been created and implemented, involving the community proactively, for an inclusive society that adapts and transforms and in which the security forces have a key role.

The railway stations are often places with high concentration of passengers and therefore offer many possibilities for pickpocketing. The pickpockets usually apply short distraction to their victims by asking a question or just bumping. Sometimes they get on train at the same time as the victim who later discovers missing money or other valuables.
