The Director-General has reminded them that words convince, but actions and actions drag, so that “your way of acting will be, without a doubt, the best stimulus for your men and women and the best guarantee of success for your superiors and for the society to which this Institution owes ”. "To send is to lead and that is what we expect of you: that you lead the Civil Guard and make it even bigger", he added.

“You are officers of the 21st century for a Civil Guard of the 21st century, in which diversity and real equality between men and women must be a fact and thus our Institution will increasingly resemble the society it serves. I trust that the 9 women who form here today will be joined by many more in the future ”, continued María Gámez.

The Director General has also had an emotional memory for the civil guards who died on duty, and especially, the 9 who have made them victims of the covid-19, "comrades whom we have not been able to fire as we wished, but whose I remember how public servants will always remain in our memory ”.
