The National Republican Guard (GNR) recognizes the crimes committed against women, children, elderly people, disabled and other particularly vulnerable victims as some of the most sensitive issues within the framework of criminal investigation. On one hand, these types of crimes are interrelated with the shame felt by the victims, the re-victimization due to police investigations efforts and the special susceptibility of its victims.

Regarding Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) cases, secondary victimization can occur by either attitude or action of the authorities that intervene in the process. Signs of doubt about the narrative of the victims, devaluating the facts referred by them or showing lack of attention and understanding about the traumas they have suffered, can make the victims feel abandoned, which in turn increases their unease, insecurity and results in secondary victimization.

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.
