New vehicles for Police force

The Police force has bought 50 new vehicles, at an investment of around €850,000, which will be distributed among various districts.

The Commissioner of Police, Lawrence Cutajar said that by the end of thais year, all the police vehicles which are used throughout the country will be new. He said that the oldest ones will be those which were purchased last year. During an inauguration of the new vehicles, the Commissioner said that there is a seven year plan for the entire fleet, which amounts to around 400 vehicles, to be modernised.

He mentioned that a programme of renovation at a number of police stations is underway, including in Qawra, Cospicua, Zejtun and Marsalforn. The Commissioner said that next year two new police stations will be opened at Marsascala and  Marsaxlokk.

The Force has also invested in six new segways.  The Commission said that since segways have been used in Valletta, there has been a decrease in the number of crimes, especially in pickpocketing.

Home Affairs Minister Michael Farrugia said that an investment in the training of Police officers has also been made.
