Of­fi­cers re­turn to streets for first time since 2013

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Mu­nic­i­pal po­lice of­fi­cers will re­turn to the streets of Athens to­day af­ter an ab­sence of more than two years. The force was dis­banded in the sum­mer of 2013 as the then gov­ern­ment sought to make up the num­bers needed for the civil ser­vice mo­bil­ity scheme. The City of Athens said that un­til Oc­to­ber 25 mu­nic­i­pal po­lice of­fi­cers will be hand­ing out leaflets aimed at in­creas­ing aware­ness about what the force’s role will be and en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to co­op­er­ate with them in a bid to pro­tect public prop­erty and make Athens a friend­lier city. From Oc­to­ber 26, they will re­sume their nor­mal du­ties, is­su­ing park­ing tick­ets and fines for other vi­o­la­tions.
