News Staff Re­porter FIG­URES pro­vided by the Guardia Civil show that crim­i­nal of­fences in the Va­len­cia re­gion have dropped by four per cent in com­par­i­son to the first nine months of 2016.

By con­trast, ar­rests made by the Guardia Civil rose by 3.80%.

This in­for­ma­tion was re­leased dur­ing a meet­ing be­tween gov­ern­ment del­e­gate Juan Car­los Mor­agues and Gen­eral José Her­mida Blanco, who is the new head of the Guardia Civil in the Va­len­cia re­gion.

Sr Mor­agues said: "The Va­len­cian peo­ple pub­li­cally recog­nise the great work car­ried out by the Guardia Civil and po­lice au­thor­i­ties to main­tain law and or­der."

Sr Her­mida ex­plained that this is his first post­ing as a Gen­eral, as he was only re­cently pro­moted.

He ad­mit­ted he does not know the re­gion well as he comes from north-east Spain, but as­sured that Va­len­cia was one of the pri­or­i­ties of the Guardia Civil.
