City’s local police awarded for work done during floods and pandemic in Spain’s Costa Blanca

Policia Local Orihuela

ORIHUELA Local Police have been awarded the “Lápiz Escuela Pública” (Public School Pencil) for the work done during both last year’s floods and the Coronavirus lockdown in the spring.

Gota Fria storms and the subsequent flooding caused death and destruction during one week in September 2019, but all emergency services stepped up – including the police.

Other noteworthy actions since then have been the work done with children during lockdown when confinement became an issue.

Home visits, birthday treats and puzzle compendiums were distributed to keep young minds busy whilst schools were closed.
