EXPATS living on the Costa del Sol will have a chance to meet their local police this week.
Marbella Town Hall is hosting a free meeting with Spanish police officers, to teach foreigners what to do in case of an emergency.
The meeting in open to anyone, and will be held on Wednesday May 7 at 11am at the Conference Centre of Marbella – next to the Copper Tower.
A policeman – fluent in English – will explain what to do if case of a range of emergency situations.
They will also give advice on the best way to avoid these situations in the first place.
The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session with officers, at which a lawyer will also be present to give advice.
Mari Angeles Chica, the organiser of the event along with Marbella Foreigners Department and Marbella police, said the idea is to help expats.
“The main aim is to assist foreigners that have experienced burglaries or any other crime. We want to make sure everyone knows what to do and how to stay safe,” she said.
