  • Council aim to increase security in newly pedestrianised areas and bring police services closer to the public

Torremolinos council has opened a new Local Police headquarters in the town centre to increase security in the area and to bring the services offered by the force closer to the public.

The new station, which will see greater police presence in the town centre, especially in the recently pedestrianised area and the surrounding plazas, was officially opened last week by Antonio Ruiz, councillor for Citizen Security, who was accompanied by several representatives of the Local Police.

"This measure comes to fulfil the commitments of the current mandate, in terms of improving citizen security in all corners of the municipality and especially in areas that have the highest influx of people," Ruiz explained.

The councillor also noted that the new services will complement the work that police patrols regularly carry out in the area, which, as he pointed out, "has been increased in recent years". The new premises is situated in Plaza Goya and will be open from Monday to Sunday from 7.15am to 9.45pm.
