The Guardia Civil activates an app for pilgrims on the Camino

Fecha: 2019-07-15

La Guardia Civil (Spanish police) has launched an app to improve safety for pilgrims on the camino. As a pilgrim you voluntarily switch on 'geolocation' on your mobile phone.

The app is called 'Alertcops' and is coordinated and managed by a 24/7 Guardia Civil Monitoring Center, making it easier for pilgrims to contact the police or to call in other help because you can see where you is located. The app can also be set in English and works in Spain, but also in parts of Portugal and France.

Download the Alertcops app and search for the 'Guardian Benemérito' function to sign up before you start working on your camino. This way you are protected 24 hours a day during your camino and you can easily ask for help.
