In an event which took place at the City Auditorium, tribute was paid by the City Council along with colleagues from Vera’s Local police to Andrés Sánchez Parra, who is now retiring after 32 years of service.


The mayor of the town, José Carmelo Jorge Blanco, gave “thanks to the work carried out in the Local Police of our city, for 32 years demonstrating their professionalism and companionship, being the promoter of the advancement of their services for the benefit of all the residents of Veracruz”.

The mayor also went on to highlight that: “during these years Sánchez has proven to be a great person who has won the affection of all the people”.

Attendance at the event was limited and capacity was restricted to 70 people due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
