SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 30 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The JUPOL union has shown its support for the agents of the National Police who yesterday Wednesday, during an arrest in Tenerife, had to act in self-defense against three potentially dangerous breed dogs that attacked the agents.
The union has informed that it is a performance in which one of the policemen was injured by a dog bite and in turn one of the dogs had to be shot down by the agents in order to guarantee the physical integrity of the policemen.
The JUPOL union has indicated that, as it has been able to verify with the different videos that have been disseminated on social networks, it has been an operation that “strictly complies with current legislation and existing police protocols in the National Police.”
As denounced by the union organization, “following the police action, there has been an indiscriminate attack against the police on social networks; attacks against which, once again, neither the General Directorate of Police nor the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, have spoken out and before which the National Police agents have once again been left to their fate and without institutional support”.
The JUPOL union has highlighted that from the outset it has made itself available to the police, providing all the necessary support, its legal cabinet and the psychological cabinet.
JUPOL has assured that these events and others similar could be avoided if the Government, the Ministry of the Interior and the DGP had not left them in “a situation of helplessness, abandonment and lack of protection”, and had been “concerned”. to carry out the union’s three demands in this sense: the distribution of Taser pistols, the updating of the National Shooting Plan and the implementation of a psychological and legal assistance service for national police officers involved in this type of situation.
