The Isorano municipal government announces the announcement of the contest to incorporate nine officers to the Local Police staff. This is the second measure of this type applied by the Consistory during this mandate. In November 2020, three agents joined this body, starting their internship at the Canarian Security Academy. This week, through Official Gazette of the Province (BOP) of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the municipal agreement was announced by which the provision of the nine new places is called via free opposition.
The Isorano Councilor for Security and Human Resources, José Rivero, maintains that “This is very good news, the result of the corporation’s effort to increase the Local Police workforce, after years of restrictions imposed on recruitment. The mayor explains that the reinforcement of personnel, as well as achieving a greater provision of material, is one of the main objectives of the government group. The goal is “for Guia de Isora to continue to be a safe municipality in all areas,” defends Rivero.

Until next April 20 is open the deadline to formalize the registration by all interested parties. To do this, they must provide the documentation and pay the fees through the electronic headquarters of the Isorano City Council or the General Electronic Registry of the General State Administration. The nine positions of agent of the Local Police belong to the scale of Special Administration, subscale of special services, class of Local Police, Group C, subgroup C1. They are accessed through the opposition system, in free shift, specifies the government group in a statement.
