Residents of the Torresur area of Torrevieja´s Rocajuna urbanisation, the majority being British, met with representatives of the security forces this week to discuss security in the area.

The deputy mayor of the Torrevieja council, Rosario Martínez, attended the gathering, along with the councillor for security, Federico Alarcón, and international residents, Gitte Lund Thomsen, in which members of the Guardia Civil and the Torrevieja Local Police were present.

The issues addressed at this meeting dealt with the powers of each body (Local Police and Guardia Civil), security, home occupation, traffic, emergency services and gender violence.

The Guardia Civil took advantage of the meeting to explain the procedures that must be carried out to report crimes through the portal of the General Directorate of the Guardia Civil, as well as the operation of the ALERTCOPS App.

With these meetings, Torrevieja town hall hopes to bring the security forces closer to the citizens, and create dialogue about the issues that concern them and the ways to solve them.
