Deputy head of Canarian Police force quits

Update 8 December 2011: The deputy commissioner and Tenerife province chief of the Policía Canaria, Blas Hernández, has left the force. He is returning to his previous employment in the Policía Local. He says his decision is related to the lack of support for the whole Canarian Police Force project by the regional Government.

Why do they DO this?

Update 1 July 2010: The first officers of the new Canarian Police Force will be on the streets any day now. Canarian President Paulino Rivero presided over their passing out parade yesterday, as the first 100 officers completed their training. The new force will  initially comprise 300 police officers who should be in post within the next three years, and will eventually become a contingent of 1700 officers over the next ten years. Itwill be autonomous in various specialized tasks, including providing information, dog wardening, environmental and rescue missions, and in taking preventative measures in areas suffering conflict or where large events are taking place, and act as a support for the Local Police and as mobile brigades.

The new force is not intended to substitute for, nor replace, any of the existing security forces, but to complement and empower them, injecting additional resources into the current system. Its principal function is to protect people and belongings, guarantee the free exercise of rights and liberties, safeguard the security of the islands’ residents and contribute to their social well-being, in particular in respect of crime prevention and rehabilitation of ex-prisoners. The officers will be striking in their newly designed uniform of black, magma red, sand yellow, grey and white, a design based on the volcanic origin of the Canaries.  C24H
