The Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality is considering asking the Interior Ministry to transfer the bodyguards no longer needed to protect public figures in the Basque Country and other parts of Spain
The SUP police trade union estimates that Spain currently has one police officer for every five victims of domestic violence considered to be at risk and in need of protection, whereas there are in the region of 10'000 police officers and civil guards employed as bodyguards for public figures. It was hoped that a team of 5'000 officers, organised into civil protection patrols would keep an eye “not only on the women, but also on their aggressors”.
