Mayor of Polis calls for more police

Following two incidents on Sunday in Polis Chrysochous, the mayor of the seaside community again raised the need to reinforce police numbers at its station.

Angelos Georgiou Odysseus said the station could not meet its multiple obligations with the current strength of numbers.

The mayor referred to the case of attempted murder being investigated by police in which a 32-year-old man appears to have gone to the home of a 33-year-old man at around 8.30am, and after calling him out, hit him with his car injuring him in the legs.

This, the mayor said, followed an earlier incident at 3am when a police car had all four tyres slashed on a patrol car in Latchi.

The mayor maintained that each shift at the station was manned by only two officers who are unable to meet the needs of his town’s increased population, especially during the tourist season.

According to Odysseus, Polis police station serves  30 communities in and around the area and should be strengthened without further delays.
