Estepona City Council informs that this coming Sunday it will celebrate the institutional act on the occasion of Local Police Day. The deputy mayor of the Development, Infrastructure and Tourism (FIT) area, Ana Velasco, explained that several Police Merit Medals with a white badge will be awarded to commemorate this festivity.
One of the people awarded will be Patricia Navarro Pérez, who since 2019 has held the position of delegate of the Government of the Andalusian Government in Malaga. The Consistory will thus appreciate the support it has provided to our city during this time, as well as its willingness to collaborate on all the issues that have been raised from the corporation.
Another recognition will go to the current Commissioner of the National Police Corps in Estepona, Daniel Salgado Veiga. This command has a long history, with experience in all police areas, as well as in the institutional relations acquired in the performance of his responsibilities as Provincial Chief and Local Chief. The Commissioner has also done a great job providing training, especially in Latin America, during his years of responsibility for Public Order Units. He also has a great capacity for negotiation, acquired in the exercise of the leadership of several police intervention units, as well as in the development of diplomatic activity during his years as Minister of the Interior in Caracas.
The City Council will deliver another of the Police Merit Medals with a white badge to the Inspector of the National Police Corps (CNP), Daniel Rodríguez Escribano. He began his police career in Algeciras in 2004 and has extensive academic training. He has stood out for his important fight against narcotics and specialized crime, carrying out important work in different destinations until his arrival at the Estepona police station in 2019 as Chief Inspector of the Local Judicial Police Brigade. Since then, his work has been extraordinary in everything related to the investigation of criminal offenses that occurred in the city.
The municipal official has announced that the captain of the Civil Guard, Pedro Luis Gemar Castillo, will also receive the same decoration. Since he joined this Corps in 1995, he has held different relevant positions, especially standing out in those of conservation and protection of nature and the rural world. He has been part of Seprona for many years and his career has been highly valued, obtaining numerous decorations and congratulations from the Civil Guard, the National Police Corps and the Army.
On the other hand, the Estepona City Council will also award the Police Merit Medal with a different target to the following Estepona Local Police officers: Antonio Jesús Ortiz Melgar, Francisco Mata Caravaca, Raúl Cadenas Gutiérrez, Raúl Martín Vadillo, Juan Antonio Solano Gamez and Pedro Martin Diaz.
Also, during the institutional act, which will take place at 1:30 p.m. in the Plenary Hall of the Palace of Exhibitions and Congresses, other distinctions will be delivered to the Local Police officers and public congratulations will be made for meritorious interventions.
