Contigo Somos Democracia Región de Murcia, about the municipalities as the administration closest to the citizen

Friday, January 18th, 2019

From Contigo We are Democracy Region of Murcia, we defend that municipalities as administration closest to the citizen, should have sufficient capacity to respond to the needs of the local community without overlapping based on the principle of subsidiaries.

The reform of the local regime orchestrated at the end of 2013 is based on the need to modernize the management of local entities and avoid duplication with the powers of other public administrations, but what it has really meant is a reduction in local autonomy and a reorientation centralist in the policies of the State, not getting clear the jurisdictional map, nor has it supposed any improvement in the efficiency for the provision of services for the citizenship.

Considering that competences such as Road Safety Education, the collaboration of the Citizen Security and the investigation of crimes of proximity, are any overlap and that such investigations are not considered improper for the municipality.

Government cooperation and police coordination remains a pending issue of our Public Safety System, since Royal Decree 1087/2010 of September 3, which regulates the Local Safety Boards, has not brought about any change to improve cooperation between the State and the respective municipalities, as well as between Local and State Police.

To these ambiguities in the writing of some of its contents, the corporatism of many police officers from different areas is added.

Contigo Somos Democracia Región de Murcia believes that the decrease in police force, followed by the aging of the same should be given an immediate solution.

The cuts made by the State to respond to the situation of economic crisis, has negatively affected the services provided by our police.

This training advocates an integral approach where the competences of the Local Police can respond effectively to the needs of citizens.

In fact, Local Police should focus on the magnificent work in areas as essential as the proximity police or community and road safety, recovering in turn that closeness to the citizenship that has been lost.

Finally With You We Are Democracy Region of Murcia wants to mention, while supporting all those Local Police Auxiliaries who, with the entry into force of Royal Decree 1449/2018 of December 14, have been discriminated against and are not has taken into account and the situation of these career officials, will not let them qualify for early retirement
