Po­lice short­age com­plaint

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

Only one Lo­cal Po­lice unit and one Guardia Civil unit are on pa­trol each day in Los Al­cázares, ac­cord­ing to So­cial­ist party (PSOE) coun­cil­lor Mario Pérez Cervera.

Sr Cervera claimed that more of­fi­cers are needed on the streets of the town to tackle ris­ing crime.

He said that bur­glar­ies, rob­beries and hold-ups are on the in­crease.

The coun­cil­lor re­minded that the town has more than 15,000 regis­tered res­i­dents and the num­ber of po­lice of­fi­cers to pro­tect the pop­u­la­tion is ‘highly in­suf­fi­cient’.

“It is a dis­grace that of­fi­cial com­plaints can only be made in the morn­ings and the short­age of of­fi­cers is pa­pered over by in­creas­ing the work­ing hours of the of­fi­cers who are sta­tioned here,” he said.

“A proper lo­cal se­cu­rity plan needs to be drawn up to ad­dress the lack of se­cu­rity and we will pro­pose this in the next full coun­cil meet­ing.”
