PO­LICE forces in the re­gion have joined to­gether and signed a Char­ter of Com­mit­ment so they can work to­gether in times of need.

Chiefs from Benissa, Dé­nia, Jávea, On­dara, El Verger, Ben­i­tachell, Lliber and Pe­dreguer gath­ered at Lliber town hall to sign the agree­ment, along with the mayor from each town.

The char­ter, called the Carta de Com­pro­misos, aims to unify pro­ce­dures and es­tab­lish a com­mit­ment to­wards mutual as­sis­tance and co­or­di­na­tion.

All forces will be able to share their re­sources, from ex­tra of­fi­cers to data and ve­hi­cles, in an emer­gency.

The project, first de­vised in 2011, was launched in Dé­nia last March and of­fi­cially launched this week.

It will cover around half of the Ma­rina Alta, mean­ing 200,000 res­i­dents are pro­tected by ex­tra po­lice re­sources if and when re­quired.

Be­niar­beig and other towns are ex­pected to sign the char­ter in 2018.
