JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA (Cadiz) Town Hall has suggested that the Local Police use vehicles seized in anti-drugs operations to patrol the streets.
Jerez has a debt of €950 million and can’t afford to increase the Local Police fleet of vehicles, according to reports in the Spanish Press.
There is an impound lot in the town where vehicle seized by the Guardia Civil are kept and which is currently full due to the number of operations in the past years.
The town hall has already initiated the necessary procedures to request 18 vehicles, which would have to be re-registered and adapted for their new use, and hopes that the plan will be approved by the Justice system.
However, they admit this would be a provisional solution because any vehicle they could use would eventually be auctioned.
