A diverse Barcelona that ensures people live well
Our citizens are increasingly concerned about community life and the use of public space. Contact between the police and the community is one of the most efficient tools for guiding prevention work and getting to know the needs of the city's various social groups and neighbourhoods. Besides exchanging information with diverse bodies, associations, institutions and communities, the public safety agencies reaffirm their commitment to serving the public and responding to their needs.
Making decisions by consensus
The Municipal Council is the highest representational body for citizens in the city's municipal government. It is made up of several sectorial commissions endowed with authority over decisions and monitoring - in addition to reporting commissions, which meet once a month.
Ensuring people are safe and protected requires the local presence of efficient, highly skilled teams that can respond rapidly to conflict and emergency situations.
