Fuengirola Local Police have been rewarded for their good work.
Fuengirola Local Police has been given an award from the Intellectual Rights Managament Association and Spanish Music Producers.
The award is in recognition for their work against the sale of bootleg CDs and DVDs, as well as other goods, and has also been given to Madrid.
The mayor, Esperanza Oña, met with the Councillor for Citizen Safety, Rodrigo Romero; the Chief Superintendent, Joaquin Rueda; the inspector in charge of the Prevention and Response Unit, Sergio Luna; sub-inspector, Rafael Perez, and the group officer, Enrique Verdugo, to congratulate them on their work.
She said that it was gratifying to receive such recognition for their efforts, and that the town hall continues to work towards stopping crimes against intellectual property.
She admitted that such crimes were a problem in large cities and tourists areas, but that the local council would continue to raise awareness amongst locals and visitors about the importance of not buying bootleg goods.
Over the past decade, more than 267,000 CDs and DVDs have been seized in Fuengirola.
