The police urge citizens to be “vigilant” during their visits to the market.
During the festive season of Christmas, New Year’s, and Epiphany, the Thessaloniki Police Department is providing advice for the protection and safety of citizens.

The police advise citizens, among other things:
– to be “suspicious,”
– not to carry large sums of money,
– to be particularly cautious in crowded areas.

Specifically, they advise visitors to the market to be attentive to their transactions, safeguard their bags and wallets, and when leaving home for vacations, to secure windows and doors and not widely publicize their absence.

Daily police checks are planned to prevent smuggling, the formation of inspection teams to enforce anti-smoking legislation, increased traffic measures along the National and Provincial road networks, as well as major city routes. Special teams will also be established to monitor the most dangerous violations, such as speeding, driving under the influence, failure to use seat belts, and protective helmets.

Additionally, the Emergency Lane (E.L.) will be policed to facilitate the movement of emergency vehicles.
