Local security council convenes

reunio2019 junta-local-de-seguretatMembers of the island's Junta Local de Seguretat (Local Security Council) came together earlier today in a gathering co-chaired by Formentera Council president Jaume Ferrer and Palma's envoy on the island, Rosario Sánchez. The meeting was also attended by a host of other officials —provincial transit chief Francisca Ramis, CiF deputy chair Susana Labrador, presidential cabinet councillor Bartomeu Escandell, mobility councillor Rafael González and social welfare councillor Vanessa Parellada—, spokespeople of other parties, representatives of the Guardia Civil, National and Local Police and Civil Protection.

President Ferrer described the annual pre-summer encounter as a way to “take stock of the previous season and coordinate the security forces' joint efforts ahead in the coming season”. Others in the administration reiterated calls for local traffic and marine details of the Guardia Civil. Ferrer announced the planned expansion of the local police force—“bringing the total number of officers to 16, five more than last summer”.

The president additionally announced the administration's bid to join Viogén, an integrated system of the Spanish ministry of interior to track gender violence. Rosario Sánchez, for her part, hailed the Council's adhesion to the compact, as well as the decision to sign a protocol of “gender violence victim protection, because it is everyone's responsibility to fight gender violence and help victims”.

Sánchez observed that “security on the island is in good shape thanks to the efforts of the Formentera Local Pocal Police, Guardia Civil, and National Police forces”. Collaboration between law enforcement agencies help reduce unlawfulness by 14 per cent in the last year, she noted, pointing out increased street patrols and the Guardia Civil's new expanded hours. In the past, the Guardia Civil was open to the public mornings from Monday to Friday. They will now be available Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 9.00pm, and weekend mornings.

Islanders can follow Council's monthly assemblies as 'e-minutes', via live-stream

foto-presentacio---web premsa1The Formentera Council's emerging technologies department announces the CiF website's newest functionality—an archive of "e-minutes", or videoactes, covering plenary assemblies at videoacta.consellinsulardeformentera.cat—is up and running. The first upload includes session minutes and are indexed by speaker contributions, as well as a link to the pdf from the meeting.

When the CiF chairman unveiled the new platform today he was joined by deputy chairs Bartomeu Escandell and Alejandra Ferrer and team worker Xavi Oliver. Ferrer said  the new technology is about “giving everyone the tools to find out what's going on in our expanded monthly sessions—it's a huge step in the direction of keeping islanders in the loop on Formentera Council business”.

Full video footage of the February assembly is available online, and islanders are just a click away from consulting meeting agenda items and individuals' interventions on the assembly floor. The sessions are also livestreamed on the Formentera Council's YouTube channel.

The first to be broadcast live, the CiF's February plenary is also available digitally on the videoacta platform. Ambiser, a firm that specialises in video broadcasting, was brought in to set up cameras and instal the operating system. The service costs €13,081 (plus VAT) in its first year and requires an annual maintenance fee of €5,000.
