Greens want animal police now

Chief of Police Zacharias Chrysostomou met a representation of the Green Party

The Green Party yesterday urged the police to create a branch to enforce legislation dealing with pets, animal police.

The issue was raised during a meeting between Chief of Police Zacharias Chrysostomou and a representation of the Green Party during which the latter was informed of the need for reforms and modernisation within the force.

Already new rules are being prepared concerning hiring, promotion and transfer procedures within the police force, while new methods of training and lifelong education for members of the police force will be introduced.

The Greens requested personnel be diverted from other services (e.g. the guards of political officials) to be utilised for the animal police.

“We also requested that the recent circular concerning cases of brutality towards animals, that was circulated briefly after our last meeting with the Chief of Police, be strictly enforced, especially in the case of the killing of Billy the dog last month,” a Greens statement said.
