The Valencian Institute of Public Safety and Emergencies (IVASPE) has postponed the 52 training course for local police officers due to the resignation of the teachers who teach these courses due to non-payments of this body, dependent on the Department of Justice directed by the socialist Gabriela Bravo.
The reactions have not been long in coming. The PP has demanded that the regional secretary of Emergencies, Jose Maria Angel, explain what is happening. The postponement has also brought immediate reactions to the serious consequences that it entails both for the police and for the municipalities themselves.
If last week OK DIARIO anticipated that the Autonomous Administration owed 10.9 million euros to the Provincial Consortium of Firefighters of Alicante only in the years 2020 and 2021, and that these delays already generated some concern in the aforementioned consortium, now the problems are growing for the autonomic organism.
A brief circular, of just two paragraphs, informed, 48 hours before the start that you see the requests of the mayors, and due to logistical problems, the Valencian Agency for Security and Emergency Response, postponed the face-to-face training phase, corresponding to the basic course for access to the agent category, which was scheduled to begin tomorrow, September 15th.
Also, it was warned that a new circular would be sent when there was a specific date to continue the face-to-face training.
The problems for the Ivaspe and the Conselleria broke out a week ago, when several teachers resigned due to repeated defaults, apparently caused by certain legal problems to execute payments for a matter of judgment, according to some sources.
This situation has caused a chain reaction. The union SPPLB (Union of Local Police and Firefighters) blamed the “closure” on the “mismanagement of those responsible.”
This union requested that the Local Police course not be suspended “due to the serious economic, professional and personal consequences that all this will entail” and requested that, if it can be carried out in person, it be held in person. online.
For its part, the Popular Group in the Valencian Courts has also positioned itself through its deputy spokesperson, Jose Antonio Rovira, who has defended that the tripartite of Puig “has turned the Ivaspe into an absolute disaster and pays for his mismanagement with the police and the municipalitys ”and has requested explanations from the Regional Secretary for Emergencies, José María Angel.
The popular deputy has pointed out that lThe suspension of the course “supposes the closure of the Ivaspe de facto, and leaves in limbo both the police officers who were going to do the course and the municipalities that had already squared their staff in anticipation of not having the agents during the training.
In addition, Rovira has highlighted the damage caused to the agents who had already planned to move to Valencia and had rented accommodation. “Everything that depends on Ángel is a real disaster, which affects everyone except him. What else has to happen for Councilor Bravo to remove him from office? Or is she directly responsible for the instructors not being paid? ”He asked.
