In accordance with current legislation, the Port Authority is responsible for police service in common areas and controlling land traffic, both of people and goods.
By applying Access Control, the entry and exit of both vehicles and people must be monitored.
In order to enhance the service and foster a culture of security between users and the port community, a number of questions to bear in mind regarding this control procedure are explained below.
THE TEN MAIN POINTS CONCERNING PORT ACCESS.INFORMATION FOR USERS
Policing common areas is the responsibility of the Port Authority, as is controlling both sea and land traffic in the Port (Article 106 of the Consolidated Text of the State Ports and Merchant Navy Act, and Article 6 of the current Operating and Policing Regulations for the Port of Marín).
Entry to the port is restricted to people and vehicles that, in view of their work or services, are duly authorised (Article 6 Operating and Policing Regulations).
Therefore, the Port Police are under the obligation to monitor entry to the port by people through the turnstiles and vehicles through the vehicle access points, to prevent accidents or security issues and to protect the facilities in order to ensure that all port operations and work by people and companies in the port are carried out in the safest and most efficient way.
