City Police

The Guàrdia Urbana de Barcelona (GUB) is a professional police force that works to prevent and anticipate problems as well as reacting to them and coordinating with other forces and emergency services where necessary.

Its range of action covers a variety of areas connected to ensuring safety in public spaces, responding to offences and infringements of the law, managing vehicle traffic and mobility, educating various sectors of the population on mobility and self-protection, preventing risk or conflict situations and, in general, providing local support to citizens to strengthen their perceptions of living in a safe city.
