Authorities expect about 200,000 people to celebrate New Year's Eve at the Avenida dos Aliados in Porto, in a reinforced security operation that takes place between 9:00 and 10:00. 8:00 am Monday and at. 17.00 Tuesday.
The celebration of the new year will depend on a fireworks display of 16 minutes and a half, which costs 28,000 euros for the Port of Camera.
The driver of the PPS in Porto, chief superintendent Pereira Lucas, told the journalists that the possible risks of the incident have already been identified, although there is no information on any form of terrorist threat.
In the avenue, there will be barriers to protection, and "two or three" additional security measures will be used in relation to last year's operation, although these were not specified at the press conference that took place this Thursday morning, in the barracks of Sapadores do Porto.
About the device on the ground, the PSP simply says it will help identify profiles and risk indicators over the nine hours. The celebration ends at 4 o'clock and the special security operation closes at 5 o'clock.
CP, Metro do Porto and STCP will have enhanced the offer on the level of vehicles and plans.
