The Government of Navarra announced this Tuesday that it has reached an agreement with the State to sign the transfer of Traffic and Road Safety to the provincial community. “We already have the date on our agendas”, the Navarrese president, María Chivite, celebrated in Madrid at the end of her meeting with the Minister of Territorial Policy, Isabel Rodríguez. It will be the second transfer of powers to the provincial community in less than a year after 20 without agreeing on any, as Miquel Iceta recalled when he went to Pamplona in June to sign the transfer of prison health.

Specifically, the transfer of these powers includes concepts such as the sanctioning procedure (fines), road safety policy, traffic management, surveillance and control of roads, driver schools, training of trainers, road education and training and statistics, among other subjects. .
Navarra will thus become the third community (together with the Basque Country and Catalonia) in Spain to fully manage road work through its regional police, in this case the Foral Police. So far, these works are carried out jointly with the Civil Guard, which, as the president of Navarra announced in an interview with elDiario.es, will continue like this for at least 5 years, a period in which the police force will be reinforced. Foral with a sufficient number of agents to be able to assume the transfer.
In addition to publishing public job offers for the Provincial Police, the Government of Navarra will offer all those Civil Guard traffic officers who do not want to leave the provincial community to become part of the autonomous body at the mercy of a footbridge included in the Police Law approved in the Provincial Parliament in 2018. “They will be attractive and adequate conditions,” said the Minister of the Interior, Javier Remírez.
“No civil guard who does not want to is going to leave Navarra,” said Chivite, who has reported that it has also been agreed with the Interior that the Civil Guard agents who want to continue in Navarra without going to the Foral Police may be relocated to other areas.
This transfer will also have to resolve the differences in the salary scale model of both bodies and some particular situations such as the right to a home enjoyed by a part of the body of the armed institute.
The Navarrese Executive will send this week the response to the technical proposal that the Ministry sent a few months ago, which includes, among other things, the value of the transfer that will be reduced from the annual contribution that Navarra makes to the State for the services it provides under the Economic Agreement.
