PSD confirmed that the security campaign will continue in the same manner and in accordance with regulatory, operational and investigative procedures to ensure the follow-up on all reports and information about gunfire acts and those who possess unlicensed firearms, in order to arrest them, confiscate their weapons and take legal and administrative measures against them.
