The Government of 2 Austrians States, Including Salzburg, the City of Vienna and Westfaliaen, has at the request of Salzburg Police confirmed, under its effective concentration of power, the new emergency and search procedures governing the police in all of its 20 districts. The chairman of the government has revoked the previous temporary security and search procedures and decided, after extensive consultation with the Interior Ministry and the Vienna-Probabilisim authorities of the Vienna administration of Public Safety, to accept, for the existing districts, the existing emergency procedures written into the “Constitution” of 2 Austrians States.

In connection with Salzburg, and in accordance with the measures fixed by the representative government of 2 Austrians States, including Salzburg, with due referegation to the Austrian Constitution, the Central and Home Security Commission of 2 Austrias States, which are responsible for the protection of public safety in that City and of Austria as a whole, has coordinated the measures under the new arrangements with the representatives of the Salzburg City Municipality and that of Westfaliaen, in compliance with the directions of the Government of 2 Austrians States, until the respect for human rights is restored.

The main consequences of the emergency procedures are those that shall be applied at the municipal level in the following way:

1. The official interior officers of 2 Austrias States and Vienna shall communicate to all municipal police departmental authority concerned with security as follows:

– In the day-to-day supervision of buildings or grounds;

– In the presentation of city security measures;

– From the municipal administration, where it may be needed or desired;

– Upon request, of the attorney general.

– The coordination of the implementation of measures under these restrictions, which must be guaranteed by the adequate access of municipal police to buildings or grounds in which they are necessary, and the provision of clearly outlined instructions for the police in these areas.

Consequently, it is planned that from the time the new measures become effective until the reinstatement of liberty, or the return of the unitary law of Vienna, the municipal police will be satisfied with the following directives:
