Safe Tourist Season Headquarters in Zadar Reopened

Total Croatia News

The ”Safe tourist season” headquarters in Croatia, a temporary summer headquarters set up by the police directorate, has been re-opened in Zadar.

The Headquarters co-operates with Ministry of Defence, the secret services, military intelligence, as well as with the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Finance and other competent bodies, writes.

The idea is to have a single place where they can control and maintain the level of safety on the coast and at sea.

The location of the headquarters is in Zadar, which makes sense because it is located centrally on the Croatian coast, and during the height of the tourist season, all of the boats in the Adriatic are followed, as are all border crossings, as are any crimes or misdemeanors related to tourists or tourism.

It premiered last year, and it proved to be an excellent idea, so it was brought back this year. Andrija Ostović, a member of the headquarters for the implementation of the security measures during 2019’s tourist season, explained that they follow just about anything that has to do with foreign nationals, whether perpetrated by them or against them, and at the same time they follow the traffic, the border crossings, and the flow of travellers.

Safety is one of the brands of tourism in Croatia, so their goal is to reduce last year’s number of a bit over 7,000 crimes during one tourist season.

Minister of the Interior, Davor Božinović, explained that last year around 158 million people crossed the Croatian borders and that the Croatian police and other services are there to take care of all those people.

They also keep a close eye on the migrant situation on the Croatian borders, the illegal traffic of fishing boats, drug trafficking and other crimes, and the way they do this work has received commendations by their Italian colleagues.

The ”Safe tourist season” headquarters is also in close contact with the fire departments along the coast, Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) and the Croatian Army. Tourism in Croatia is too valuable for anything to be left to chance!
