The Prevention and Response Unit, UPR, also called "Bronze" by the National Police was created in 2008, and integrated into the General Department of Public Safety, to help the IPU. At the end of 2012 it was announced the reorganization of this unit, which has shifted to prevention efforts and restoration of the IPU as law enforcement, working with other police units and institutions to serious unforeseen events considered. Then, and because of the wide variety of logos that had every specialty UPR (many of these logos created a personal capacity by officers of each specialty), it was decided to create a unique emblem. It can be seen in the photograph. This is the distinctive metallic specialty. There is also a patch chest, small size, and arm, standard size. Interestingly, the first UPR wear this patch was that of Castellón, to then be put in the rest of all the UPRs of Spain.
