Local Police help Spanish town’s urban planning needs

WORKING as a Local Police officer is not all about tackling criminals, breaking up fights and directing traffic.

In the town of San Roque for example (which includes the massive Sotogrande developments within its boundaries), the Local Police work closely with the Department of Urban Planning and are used to review and inspect areas concerning planning.

During 2019, it undertook 783 different actions to review areas brought to its attention either by the council or following advice or complaints from local residents.

It must be remembered that unlike both the Guardia Civil and National Police, the Local Police force is recruited, managed and generally paid for by the local council and therefore in an area where there is not a huge volume of crime, officers are called upon to undertake other work which is beneficial to the community.
