Hi all,

From what I read our Councillor is doing a great job, and getting noticed, and supporting funding for the residents of Camposol.

She gets my full support.

So, what about all the residents and there must be about 2500-3000 of us, looking at paying into a account about THREE Euros each per month, and looking at funding our own Police Officer, with a small Police station, may be in one of the empty shops on B.

Surely THREE Euros is not a great deal to ask monthly, but could give us a great service.

A police Officer, with a police station on our community patch, would be fantastic.

Its not a great deal of money to give, but could give us a great service, and it is needed.

Yes I am sure we will have those who will find a negative issue over it, and that would be sad, 

So, any ideas,?

There used to be a police office on A many years ago.

Interesting,

So I do not see why we should not have one again, yes it may take resident contributions, but as little as 3 Euros a month should sort it.

Thank you.

I am not sure where to start, but will run it by one of the meetings that take place.

I feel it would be great, but lets see the negative responses that come in first.

Hi I'm not in Camposol yet, still have to work a few more years before that happens, but I think its a great idea. I would even contribute from here, as it would all help the future development, and when I'm there on hols

Fantastic idea until you try and get the money off people!!!! So I guess this is a negative response. They'll say, oh but we pay our IBI for things like policing BUT to have our own dedicated policeman it would be cheap at a price like that. I dare them to say it wouldn't!

I would pay 3 euros a month / 36 euros a year to have a our own police officers to patrol and look after Camposol. There should be no negatives when you think if you still lived in England the amount you would have pay in Council Tax against IBI here. And you will always get negative people who would be the first to complain if something happened to them.

Hi,

Fully agree, may be a Direct Debit into a bank account, or police account would do it.

It needs working on, and I am up for sorting it, but need to speak to our councilor first.

Just think, our own police station, and police patrol, magic.

So far I have had a good response.

Re -  paying for a Police Oficer for Camposol alone.  How would that work ?  For a start he'd need transport - Camposol is a big area.  How would  one officer manage ?  Next thing more officers would be needed, with more expense for the residents to fork out for. It would be like trying to fund a private army - ridiculous (in my opinion).  There has already been a police office set up once by the proper authorities and deemed to be uneconomical. What is wrong with the Police presence already in force here.? - nothing , in my experience. Any time I have needed them they have come pronto !    There has also been an attempt to organize a private security prescence here for a very small price before but not enough uptake resulted. -  I say leave it to the professionals we have already paid for..
