ADVICE FOR JUBILEE PILGRIMS' SAFETY IN ROME
Pope meets with public security forces
    VATICAN CITY, JAN 16 (ZENIT).- The Italian Police have prepared a pamphlet entitled "Safe Rome" to help pilgrims prepare for their stay in the Eternal City. Included in the advice given to Jubilee pilgrims arriving from all over the world are the suggestions not to carry unnecessary or excessive amounts of money, to make photocopies of personal documents, not to leave suitcases or bags in unguarded places, and to mistrust impromptu street vendors. Four million copies of the pamphlet have been published, an initiative of the Roman Agency for Preparation for the Jubilee. Originally written in Italian, the pamphlet has been translated into English, French, and German, and is being distributed through Tourist Information Centers of the City of Rome and the Police Office.

    The pamphlet also has useful telephone numbers in case of emergencies and a map of the city, highlighting the police stations nearest the basilicas and monuments.

    In a related story, Pope John Paul II asked the General Inspection of Public Security at the Vatican to make "a greater effort so that the celebrations and events related to the Jubilee will take place normally and fruitfully."

    During his meeting with the police, the Pope said that "external order, over which you guard with care, will foster interior order, filled with serenity and peace." And he added: "I hope you will feel within yourselves that peace that the angels announced to men of good will at Bethlehem." ZE00011602 and ZE000011408
