Safe Residence Programme Albufeira


The GNR Safe Residence Programme (SRP) Team Albufeira was formed in February of 2011. The SRP covers rural properties registered with the program in the areas of Paderne and Albufeira.  The team comprises four members. As at October 2016 there are 1008 properties registered in SRP Albufeira.

Personal message from the Comandante do Destacamento Territorial de Albufeira

“The GNR’s Operational Command Unit in Albufeira embraced the “Residência Segura” (Safe Residence) Programme in the sure knowledge that it would ensure enhanced safety for the municipality’s residents and, in particular, for those whose homes are more isolated and vulnerable. Six years on, we can affirm that not only did we achieve our goal but that the bond of trust between the population and the GNR is stronger today than ever before.

Since the Safe Residence Programme is also a platform where important information relating to everyone’s safety can be shared, we would like to appeal to all members of the community to contribute whenever possible. Always bear in mind that our neighbours are very important partners in keeping us all safe.

Lastly, I would like to praise Safe Communities Algarve for their collaboration with the GNR on this programme. They have played a vital role in promoting the programme and in encouraging residents to take part.”
