Malta Police Union sheds light on 'disgraceful' condition of police stations

The Malta Police Union has shed light on the ‘disgraceful’ conditions of local police stations in recent months, calling for immediate correction of the situation.

“Beyond a ‘decent’ facade, there is a disgrace of a workplace fit for no one, let alone for a Police Officer who spends a 12 hour shift. This is without mentioning the unwelcoming environment the citizen find upon entering the station.”

The Malta Police Union Page highlighted that while some works in other stations have been done, they will continue to follow up to ensure that such actions are not cosmetic quick reactions.

Throughout the summer months, the Malta Police Union had also shed light on the inadequate state of multiple police stations.

“Two years down the line and the so called Malta Police Transformation Strategy is not catering for these issues, which are of utmost importance to our demotivated district officers,” the post concluded.
