Extra Security in Morocco

Security across Morocco is being ramped up in preparation for the end of year celebrations. Travellers can expect more police checkpoints and increased patrols

New security units are preparing to join national security from the end-of-year celebrations, According to the newspaper Al Massae , the head of the Directorate General of National Security (DGSN), Abdellatif Hammouchi, has announced the creation of commando units working in conjunction with the judicial police. These new teams will look much like the US Rapid Response Brigades.

The DGSN is on the alert to succeed in securing these holidays. The security alert is at its highest level and a new security strategy is planned in all cities to cancel any risk of terrorist attack. Embassies, consulates, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, train stations and airports will be closely monitored by security forces. Checkpoints will also be installed at the entrance of major cities that will experience the most traffic flows.
