DURING 2016, the Guardia Civil has spent €26 million in purchasing new vehicles for its fleets, consisting mainly of patrol cars, as well as special vehicles for use by research units.

The Director General of the Guardia, Arsenio Fernandez de Mesa received the latest 102 SUV vehicles costing €2.5 million in Madrid. 

The expenditure in 2016 is more than double the combined spend in 2014 and 2015 which included a grant from the European Union which allowed for the purchase of additional vehicles in those years.

In addition, two of the vehicles purchased were made over to the town of Boadilla del Monte for use locally by certain of their agents in order to protect the local population, as part of an on-going arrangement between the Guardia Civil and various public authorities.
