The local government's decision to increase the number of Policer Officers in the city of Porto starts to be implemented this Summer Season.
Mayor Rui Moreira stated that the Municipal Police will see an increase in its law enforcement agents from 119 police officers to 213.
This will be the first phase regarding the procedure to increasing the number of police officers.
Now that legislation governing Municipal Police has been published, both Porto City Hall and Lisbon City Hall will be able to operate more effectively in the field of security.
This enacted legislation allows adopting a much more constructive position on police reform, including approval of the police's new areas of responsibility.
