Granadilla cracks down on security after recent crimes
Granadilla is tightening security in the municipality with new measures and night patrols by the police.
Safety councillor, Guacimara González said they were taking the action following a number of recent incidents.
“Security is an absolute priority for the municipal government,” she stressed.
An action plan is being launched, which together with the work of the police, will hopefully put an end to criminal events over the last week or so.
It is realised that darkness gives thieves more cover so patrols at night are being stepped up.
The council says that despite economic cutbacks, it has managed to make improvements since 2011, including purchasing a new more modern fleet of police vehicles and manned sta-tions.
Members of the public have been asked to co-operate in this campaign and locally, the number of 092 can be dialled to make quicker contact with the pólice.
