Adrian Delia addresses police shortage; "If we don't wake up from our slumber it will be too late"

Nationalist Party MP and former leader Adrian Delia took to Facebook on Thursday to address the degrading state of conditions within the Malta Police Force.

Delia wrote that he had visited the Marsa police station five years ago, only to find it closed, with conditions worsening over time to an alarming state. “We are already extremely late… if we do not wake up from this profound slumber, it will be too late!”, the MP stated.

Delia highlighted the police force’s staff shortage, closed stations, degrading office, lowly conditions and less-than-satisfactory training, with little to no investment and lack of armed officers in ‘difficult‘ areas.

Delia is not the first politician or citizen to shine a light on the situation, with multiple fights and other street crimes making the headlines in recent months, and the state of Malta’s police stations & offices remaining an issue.

What do you make of this?

Police urge against announcing household is on holiday on social media

Police urge against announcing household is on holiday on social media

The Malta Police Force issued out a advisory post on social media to warn against announcing that a household is completely unattended as all its occupants are abroad or on holiday. 

The post asked whether people would leave a physical note on the door of a house, stating ‘House Unattended. All the family is off for a holiday.’ If not, the police asked whether it would then make sense to announce it via social media. 

‘Do not make it easier for criminals’ they said. ‘While physically securing your home is extremely important, one can also take certain social measures for security.’ 

The post, whilst not intending to keep people from sharing lovely memories being made whilst abroad, could inspire travellers to be a bit more careful about how and when to share holiday photos. This could be as easy as not revealing how many of the household are actually abroad, or posting images after one has returned.
