Czech airports to be given stepped up police security

03-05-2017 updated

Czech airports will be guarded by around 220 more police than hitherto under a Ministry of Interior proposal approved by the government on Wednesday. Most of the extra police, around 200, will be directed to Prague’s Václav Havel airport with around two dozen sent to smaller regional airports such as Pardubice, Brno, Karlovy Vary, and Ostrava. The cost of the extra police is expected to run to around 116 million crowns a year.
