TWO new superintendents have taken up their posts in the Almeria National Police force.
Rafael Rodriguez Perez takes over as the head of the El Ejido station. A law graduate with a master’s in political science, administration and terrorism, the 45-year old joined the police force in 2000. He is described as an expert in jihadist terrorism, and has received a number of police medals for his work.
Previous postings include Almeria provincial headquarters and Granada city.
Antonio Manuel Burgos is the new chief of the Public Safety Provincial Brigade. He joined the force in 1991 after studying teaching and psychology and going on to do a master’s in security and a political science degree.
As an inspector he had posts in Barcelona, Madrid and Seville. He was also head of public safety at the Seville south district station and the provincial head of Seville unit assigned to the autonomous community.
The promotions of the two men, who this week were received by the Government Sub-delegate in Almeria Manuel de la Fuente, followed a selection process and specific training.
