Award for Spanish maritime security practices

11 November 2013

ICTS Europe’s contributions to maritime security and border control at the Port of Barcelona are recognised with an award from the Guardia Civil, the Spanish Police Force.

ICTS Hispania, ICTS Europe’s Spanish subsidiary has been responsible for the provision of security services to cruise ships at the Port of Barcelona since February 2011. Services include the security at check points with the use of x-ray machinery, escorting and guarding of ships and canine patrols.

2011 marked the start of private security companies taking over responsibilities for security services from the police forces and ICTS Hispania was the first company to be awarded a contract at Barcelona. Since then maritime operations have expanded to include the Ports of Malaga, Valencia and Palma de Majorca.
