New agreement means Canarian police to help security in Arona
The municipality of Arona will incorporate, from now on, the Canarian Police as reinforcement to the security tasks in the municipality, whose troops will go on to provide support and collaboration to the Local Police.
This has been agreed in a deal signed by the Mayor, José Julián Mena, accompanied by the deputy councillor of the security department, Raquel García.
Arona has made safety one of its priorities in the last three and a half years. Hence, more than 1.7 million euros have been invested in material resources for the Local Police, the approval of the List of Job Positions (RPT) and the improvement of the agents’ salaries and the coverage of the position, the first time, of chief deputy commissioner. El Fraile is also getting a security office..
The agreement, signed by the Mayor of Arona and the Minister of Territorial Policy, Sustainability and Security of the Government of the Canary Islands, Nieves Lady Barreto, establishes the cooperation framework between both police and the “active participation” of the Canarian Police in the citizen security of the municipality, as well as the provision of support by the latter also in specific tasks, the performance of joint operations and collaboration in the field of information, in addition to the realisation of training actions.
José Julián Mena has underlined the importance that “not only have we reinforced the material means of the Local Police to improve the safety conditions of Arona, but now we add these tasks to the Canary Police itself, which will cooperate with troops, through of this agreement, to the work carried out by our agents”.
