  • [01] Anti-crime initiative discussed

    Citizen Protection Minister Mihalis Chrysohoidis on Friday outlined the ministry's anti-crime initiatives, including the "neighborhood police officer" measure introduced last Monday, as well as the operation of what he described as "model police precincts" in districts with higher crime rates.

    Local problems were also discussed and proposals made aimed at tackling crime in the meeting he chaired at the ministry held with the participation of 47 greater Athens area mayors, including Athens Mayor and Central Union of Municipalities and Communities (KEDKE) President Nikitas Kaklamanis.

    Chrysohoidis said afterwards that the discussion focused on the triptych of "zero tolerance" vis-à-vis lawlessness, safe cities and neighborhoods, as well as closer cooperation between social institutions to deal effectively with the problem

    Kaklamanis, who hails from main opposition New Democracy (ND) party, said Chrysohoidis' initiative was positive as long it has follow up, while he said he also agreed with the "ideological framework" set out by the minister.

    Deputy Health Minister Gennimata underlined that the government is displaying the political will to tackle the crime problem.
