Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

In the draw of May 13

The traditional coupon ONCE joins the tribute received by the Civil Guard for its 175th anniversary.

175th Anniversary of the Civil Guard

This presentation is framed in the commemorative events of the 175th anniversary of the creation of the Civil Guard.

With these acts, the Civil Guard wants to transmit to the public the values ​​of public service and the constitutional principles for which the Body has worked since the day of its foundation.

Encouraging the culture of security in today's society and continuing to protect the free exercise of rights and freedoms from honor are the objective and mission of this Institution, guarantor of citizen security.

On March 28, 1844, the Civil Guard is created.

For his organization, Field Marshal Francisco Javier Girón y Ezpeleta, Duke of Ahumada, is designated.

Initially it is composed of 14 chiefs, 232 officers and 5769 guards divided into 14 Thirds.

In the summer of 1844 the recruitment of the first aspirants began.

In the presentation of the Body, a new uniformity could be seen, in which an original three-cornered hat of French origin called attention: the tricorne that, with time, would become one of the representative symbols of the Civil Guard and of our country.

His first international mission was in 1847, when Portugal, in civil war, requested the help of Spain, which sent a Cavalry unit of the Civil Guard to Oporto.

Queen Isabel II created in 1853 the Company of Young Guards, which provides protection and education to the orphans and children of the Corps and helps the formation of new guards.

It is the origin of the current College of Young Guards Duke of Ahumada.

The Civil Guard lives closely the history and evolution of Spain.

The arrival of the railway leads to the body escorting trains since 1886. In 1922, the anthem of the Civil Guard is sung for the first time.

The Civil War divides the Body.

In 1940 a General Staff was created within the organic structure of the Corps formed exclusively by officers of the Army, from which the Civil Guard became dependent.

After the war, the phenomenon of the maquis or guerrilla anti-Franco arises.

The Civil Guard is entrusted with its eradication.

In 1959 the Traffic Association of the Civil Guard was created.

Begin the specialization of the Body: the Mountain Service, the Underwater Activities, the Helicopter Group, and the Explosives Deactivation Service are born.

With the arrival of democracy, the Civil Guard is ascribed to the State Security Forces and Corps, conserving its military nature, but not being part of the Armed Forces.

In these years the Benemérita faces the fight against terrorism.

In 1981 there was an attempted coup led by high military commanders whose execution was supported by some Civil Guard officers very sensitive to terrorist aggression.

The coup failed due to the absolute lack of support from the rest of the Armed Forces, the Civil Guard itself and the rest of society.

In 1986 the Civil Guard is defined as an armed military institute, dependent on the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Defense.

Its own function of citizen security extends to the territorial sea, control over weapons and explosives, State Fiscal Protection, pursuit of contraband, surveillance of traffic and transport, protection of coasts, borders, ports and airports and conservation of nature and environment.

In 1988, the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA) was created.

And in 1991 the Maritime Service of the Civil Guard was born.

In 1988, the incorporation of women into the Armed Forces was regulated, opening the way for women to enter the Benemérita.

The Civil Guard has participated in 52 international peace missions, to which it has contributed 5,818 agents, mostly under the auspices of the UN and the European Union.

Currently the Civil Guard is composed of more than 82,000 women and men, always evolving and modernizing to adapt to the current situation and face any type of threat.
