SPAIN’S National Police force has issued an appeal on social media for people not to divulge details of roadside checks.
The plea came on the same day that saw police make arrests in the south of Spain in a huge operation that involved roadblocks in La Linea (Cadiz) and on the Costa del Sol that were widely reported by the press.
The cops tweeted: “Police checks are used to protect you. If you warn of their presence, they lose effectiveness. #PorTuSeguridad do not disseminate information on the existence of controls. #SomosTuPolicía.”
