The Security Councilor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council, Gladis de León, has confirmed that the Carnival decorations will remain in place at the Local Police posts despite criticism from the socialist group at the control commission meeting held last Friday.
The PSOE sought explanations following a complaint from the union CSIF, which demanded the immediate removal of the anagrams adorning the surveillance posts of the Local Police during the Carnival. The decorations include references to television programs and the festival theme, such as ‘Whoever that fails’ or the Ruperta of ‘1, 2, 3’.
Additionally, socialist spokesperson Florentino Guzmán raised concerns over the union’s complaint about the distinct areas of operation and influence assigned to National Police and Local Police during the carnivals. Guzmán highlighted doubts about the limitation of police space and emphasized the enforcement of municipal ordinances, where only the National Police would be involved.
In response, De León refuted that the police delimitation had caused any issues the previous year, stating, “The Local Police are fully capable of performing their duties if required.”
