El Ejido crime numbers fall


EL EJIDOS’ Town Hall has announced a 40 percent crime reduction this year on last summer.

The Town Hall said that an increase in police presence, on a permanent basis, particularly at the shoreline and in recreational areas, is behind the decline.

The city’s deployment of police patrols on bikes, foot and quad bikes has resulted in a decrease in the number of offences. There has also been a significant reduction in complaints directed to clubs and late night bars.

In a statement, the city said: “we continue to increase security rates and reduce the number of crimes, thus gaining in service efficiency and, therefore,in safety”

They added that: “the high level of satisfaction shown by visitors was because of greater collaboration between the Local Police and Civil Protection” and “these good statistics have also been the result of increased awareness on the part of the neighbors in the development of certain behaviors.”
