| The motion of the socialist party, debated last night in plenary session to provide bulletproof vests to the municipal agents, goes ahead | Citizen security is a suspended subject for the local executive.
In districts like El Esparragal, residents have suffered from great insecurity for a long time.
Added to this disastrous management by the Government Team is the recent reduction of the Local Police staff, the work overload and risk derived from the control related to the current pandemic and the lack of adequate material. María Rosa García, spokesperson for the PSOE of Puerto Lumbreras, points out that "it is a need that has been claimed for years.
It is not just a need for the current financial year 2020, but this lack was already suffered in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and it has not been become a reality until the socialist group has lobbied for it.
In this situation, the least that should be done by our agents is to provide them with adequate equipment so that they can carry out their risky work in safety conditions.
" With this motion, individual bulletproof, cut-proof and anti-puncture vests will be provided At the same time, the socialist spokesperson Mª Rosa Rosa García revealed in the debate on the motion that ¨the Puerto Lumbreras city council has not answered the questions posed by the municipal socialist group about the list of vehicles available to the local police and the state of them.
It is striking that they do not know this information but they do know that it is necessary to acquire one through renting, a sign that the questions, to which they have not answered in this plenary session, show the lack of vehicles even ¨ Finally, the spokesperson highlighted satisfaction of materializing these improvements, firstly by the agents and, secondly, because the work of good opposition has its fruits.
