The lack of new uniforms has become a major problem for the National Police in Spain

As reported by the SUP, the Police Intervention Units (UIP), and in general, all police officers assigned to Citizen Security tasks, the lack of new uniforms for National Police officers in Spain has become a serious problem.

This issue has been brewing for more than one year now and is affecting most operational units of the force. Incredibly, it appears that the lack of interest of theGeneral Directorate of Police (DGP) in solving the matter is about to force the police to go out on patrol in plain clothes.


Policemen with six-day shifts in a row only have one uniform each for duty, a situation that in some cases lasts for a year. Their uniforms lose their letters, leaving police officers forced to go out on patrol with torn pants or ripped uniforms. Many of them have disintegrating footwear, and there are a number of officers who wear boots every day that should have passed away months ago.

Chris was born in a small village in Wales, where he ran his own successful construction company for many years, before deciding in 1990, to swap the grey skies and rain for the sunshine and lifestyle of the Costa del Sol. Late last year he made the move to Southern Portugal, and is now residing on the Algarve. Having sung and played in a rock band back in Wales, he still likes to go out and entertain in his spare time, singing in restaurants and golf clubs. Interests are of course music, especially from the 60s and 70s, movies, nice restaurants, and he has a passion for graphic design and online marketing.
