Catalonia, a country with more than a thousand years of history, a culture and a language of its own, has been provided with a police force to serve all its citizens: the Policia de la Generalitat – Mossos d’Esquadra.
The Mossos d’Esquadra is an integral police force with a defined model, functions and structure. The Catalan model is based on the development of the Police Force of Catalonia, comprising the Police Force of the Generalitat and the local police force. Cooperation, collaboration, institutional fidelity and mutual assistance between the authorities, administrative bodies and public services are the main principles of the catalan system of public safety.
A police force at the service of the community, more closely linked to the needs of the society it serves. Its main values are the commitment, the professionalism and the proximity.
