Two detainees and 70 complaints, in three days, for violating the state of alarm

 Javea Local Police continue to ensure that citizens comply with the restrictions set by the State of Alarm. 

Since March 16th, they have controlled more than 3,000 vehicles driving on public roads, identified almost 2,500 people and filed 165 complaints against people who were outside their homes without just cause. Of these, two have been detained.

Of these cases, more than a third have been logged in the last three days. Between Saturday and Sunday there were 50 complaints, filed by the local police, of which 20% were to people who had moved to their second homes. And today, Monday, another 20 have also been sanctioned, mostly from other autonomous communities.

The Local Police, in addition to this internal surveillance and access to the town, (with which it coordinates with the Guardia Civil), is providing important assistance. There are 974 phone calls related to the alarm situation and the agents are also in charge of distributing the protection material (masks, gloves or disinfecting gels) that the City Council receives from both private and company donations and from the various administrations.

These are delivered to the Health Centres, Red Cross, Nursing Homes and groups that work in basic sectors such as cleaning or transportation.

Also, this weekend, agents participated in actions such as the day of disinfection carried out with the agricultural machinery.
