The 10-day security operation was conducted on the first 10 days of October.
During the security campaign, the city’s police arrested a suspect wanted nationally for his involvement in an unidentified crime, while 15 other suspects involved in drug and alcohol cases were arrested during the same operations, according to a statement issued by Marrakech’s prefecture of police.
Sixty-five other defendants were arrested for public offenses and five were jailed for public indecency, reported Maghreb Arab Press (MAP). Eleven other suspects were arrested for robbery, while 22 were arrested for violence and knives possessions in suspicious conditions. Three other suspects were arrested for fraud and four others were arrested for possession of “dubious items.”
The city’s security authorities also managed to transfer 36 individuals suffering from mental disorders to the hospital.
The police have also conducted a series of operations in order to monitor the regulation of the profession of tourist guides. The police arrested 214 unauthorized tourist guides in the city.
These operations form part the security measures seeking to protect Moroccan cities and make them a safe place for domestic and international tourists.
In April, Moroccan police arrested 746 unauthorized tourist guides in the city of Fez. The city’s police launched a campaign in January in order to protect tourists.
