The city is divided into 10 districts and 73 neighbourhoods. The Guàrdia Urbana has a decentralised presence in the territory, with a territorial unit for each district and four night-time operational units.
Working inside these territorial units are local officers, performing neighbourhood-centred patrols, as well as local-support officers, carrying out specific tasks such as responses to 092/112 requests, radar teams, forest-patrol teams, public-space surveillance teams and complaints offices. The latter three teams have a permanent presence in some territorial units and a temporary one in others, depending on the needs of each territory.
In addition, territorial units have officers who perform specific support work in the community for the Security-Education Service, the Neighbourhood Police and the operational technical-assistance teams.
Finally, as support for each territory’s local needs, the GUB has a series of centralised units: Daytime Support Unit, Traffic Division and Security and Investigation Division.
Besides these, there are also units that are set up seasonally to meet the city’s needs, such as the Beach Unit.
