Air de­part­ments to merge

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The po­lice and fire depart­ment’s air ser­vices are to merge into one body fol­low­ing an amend­ment tabled by In­te­rior Min­is­ter Panos Sk­ourletis and Al­ter­nate Min­is­ter for Ci­ti­zens’ Pro­tec­tion Nikos Toskas. The amend­ment was part of leg­is­la­tion drafted by the Jus­tice Min­istry in or­der to pro­vide economies of scale and lead to broader and more flex­i­ble op­er­a­tional ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The new, uni­fied body, which will come un­der the ju­ris­dic­tion of the Greek po­lice force’s headquarters, was ex­pected to share train­ing fa­cil­i­ties, op­er­a­tors and he­li­copters, among oth­ers.
