The weight of the unprecedented security deployment in Madrid for the NATO summit falls on the National Police, but all the Security Forces and Corps have a role. That of the Civil Guard focuses on guaranteeing mobility and road safety in the main accesses to Madrid: roads such as the A2, the M-40, the M-11 or the M-12 where cuts and diversions are being carried out partial before and during the passage of the official delegations.
More than 2,400 agents of this Corps participate in the tasks that have been assigned to them and that are articulated around three axes: the aforementioned road safety, which includes Civil Guard pilot cars in all the routes of the caravans, punctual cuts of roads and, of course, security controls on those same roads.
The second major task focuses on the Barajas-Adolfo Suárez airport, where part of the staff of the attending delegations arrives, specifically at the State Pavilion. The UEI (elite unit) reinforces its personnel with drone surveillance and other troops in this sensitive area.
The Civil Guard will also be in charge of watching over one of the key moments of the summit: the gala dinner that will be offered at the Royal Palace. Underground agents of the Corps, shooters in strategic places, drones and a helicopter with members of the UEI are already deployed waiting for the assistants to arrive.
In recent days, the agents involved in this security device have carried out several drills at the entrances to the capital so that everything is ready and greased and they have distributed a video in which you can see how those preambles have worked carried out by the Reserve and Security Group, by Traffic and Citizen Security agents. Both in the Civil Guard and in the rest of the Corps, nothing has been left to chance and there is absolute confidence that no problem will arise. Staff in neighboring provinces are also on alert just in case.
