Local Police officers under investigation

Two Local Police officers in Torrox are under investigation after, apparently, during their afternoon shift on May 1st, issuing sixteen parking fines to vehicles in Los Llanos, Venta Espinosa and calle Cáceres when they were supposed to be engaged in tasks relating to animals, street vendors and litter.

The officers in question allegedly disobeyed orders, handing out the parking fines rather than carrying out the duties assigned to them.

This is not the first time this has happened and there is an open enquiry from April when officers engaged in handing out parking tickets in avenida de América in urbanisation Centro Internacional rather than the duties assigned.

Relations between the municipal authorities and the Local Police in Torrox, as in many towns, are, at the very least, strained.
