Muñoz underlined the importance of “providing a city as important as Marbella with the personnel needed to serve its population in terms of security”, while highlighting the need to “increase the number of troops, taking into account the retirement of some of those who make up this body”.
“We are lucky that this municipality continues to be a very attractive destination and we have a lot of vocation among our young people to join the Local Police”, said Muñoz, who highlighted that the last opposition, from which the new agents came out, 1,500 applicants applied.
The first mayor recalled that in 2021 it was held the call for 12 police officers who will increase to 28 in 2022“a very important figure in the process that we are going to move forward”, and that will be carried out foreseeably in the coming weeks.
With regard to the nine agents who have taken possession of their positions today, the first mayor has specified that they have to pass nine months of training at the academy, before the summer they will be doing internships in the street and, once they finish their apprenticeship, they will formally take office as civil servants. As for the three mobility police officers, the councilor has indicated that once they take office next week, they will join the force directly, having already passed through the academy.
