According to the report of the UDYCO (Drugs and Organized Crime Unit of National Police of Spain), organized crime rate reduced in Andalusia in 2008. More than 300 arrests were held in Malaga last year.

Antonio Morales, the Malaga’s chief prosecutor, supposes that the UDYCO specialists have successfully struggled with corruption in Costa del Sol, the most popular with tourists resort area in Spain. In 2008, they prevented money laundering on sum of about 1.3 million euros. Also, a great number of diverse currencies and more than one million fake euros were withdrawn by the UDYCO police unit.

It should be mentioned that the UDYCO began to use high technologies much more. The police unit was equipped with up-to-date laptops, GPS navigation devices, satellite communication systems and so on in 2008. Undoubtedly, it has greatly improved work efficiency of the UDYCO.
