The agents of the State Police were joined by the men of the Carabinieri, the Guardia di Finanza, the Roma Capitale Local Police and the Civil Protection.

“The Prefecture, the Police Headquarters and the Local Police will work to ensure compliance with the rules – said the mayor Gualtieri announcing the signing of the ordinance, last December 1 – However, it is primarily up to the Romans with their behavior and their sense of responsibility, guaranteeing the application of this and other fundamental safety standards, protecting oneself and others. For our part, we will evaluate the effects of the ordinance and the trend of the infection curve, and we are ready, if it will be necessary, to further strengthen the provision with a generalized obligation “.
