THE PSOE in Marbella are calling for a boost in Guardia Civil numbers.

The Socialists will support a town hall motion next week which will call for an increase in numbers and a salary raise to match the Policia Nacional.

It comes after the local government said the infrastructure of the Guardia Civil ‘is not the most appropriate’.

Former mayor Joser Bernal said: “That is why we urge the national Executive to take action on security, an issue that is so important for our municipality.”

The PSOE will also urge Madrid to bump up the Guardia Civil salary.
“This proposal was presented as an amendment recently and was not supported by the PP,” said Bernal.
