Delta of­fi­cers to be moved

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Some 200 mem­bers of the po­lice’s mo­tor­cy­clerid­ing Delta squad are to be di­vided among var­i­ous branches of the force. It was re­vealed yes­ter­day that of the 220 po­lice­men that made up the squad, 100 are likely to join the crime preven­tion unit (OPKE), 80 have asked to be­come part of the riot squad, while the rest are set to be as­signed to the DIAS mo­tor­cy­cle-rid­ing unit. The shake-up is hap­pen­ing as a re­sult of the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to dis­band the Delta squad. The po­lice­men join­ing OPKE will un­dergo two weeks of train­ing be­fore tak­ing up their new du­ties.
