Athens City Police are given greater authority

The Interior Ministry and Athens city officials announced on Tuesday an agreement calling for an increase in the role of city police.

This decision is made in a conflict between the local government and the Ministry of Civil Protection regarding street crime in the city center, which depicts the disadvantages of the Greek capital.

Under an agreement signed by Interior Minister Makis Bolidis and Mayor Costas Bacoyanis Athens, the city police will be strengthened and empowered with more staff.

“Athens needs another police model, one of the independent community policies. In this model, the city police play a decisive role as well as a complementary one,” said the Greek police. Bacoyanis, who accused him of failing to maintain a strong presence on the streets of the city, said. Control crimes such as pickpocketing, minor theft, drug trading and use, and other street-level violations.
