Officers of the Greek Police's new restructured motorcycle-riding Delta squad are to get back to work this weekend as part of a broader plan by the conservative government to increase citizens' sense of security in their neighborhoods.
Dismantled by the previous leftist government, the recreation of the Delta squad was one of Kyriakos Mitsotakis' key pre-election pledges.
The Greek government remained a "cooperative counterterrorism partner" of the United States in 2018 and improved its tools and information exchange to vet undocumented migrants who continue to arrive in significant numbers, the State Department said for the country in its annual report on terrorism.
Until the end of the year, a number of 14 emergency dispatches in the country would be fully integrated so that they include, together with the Fire Service and Ambulance, representatives of other services, such as the Police and the Gendarmerie, the head of the Department for Emergency Situations, Raed Arafat, mentioned on Wednesday.
Outgoing Prime Minister Vioica Dancila voiced her hope on Wednesday for the new Government to carry forward the projects destined to saving people, adding that, during her mandate, a series of measures have been taken, including the improvement of the 112 national emergency response system.
