GRASP is a joint communications initiative between the Policía Local and the Guardia Civil in Torrevieja. The initiative is intended to provide two-way communications between security agencies, citizens, commercial associations and organisations such as Vecinos Cooperando y Colaborando de España.
One of the communications channels envisaged by the security agencies is that in the event of a serious incident the security agencies can send, by SMS messaging, details of suspects, vehicles and other pertinent information.
The manner in which Neighbourhood Watch can contribute to this communication channel is that the Lead Coordinator of each Torrevieja Branch would submit two mobile phone numbers to the security agencies and on receipt of an SMS message from them, seeking assistance, the Lead Coordinator would pass the information to all their contacts.
This is a brief explanation of how the security agencies can be asisted by the public in resolving serious incidents. The cooperation between the Policía Local and the Guardia Civil in Torrevieja is an example to all.
