Angels Bosch Camprecios
Deputy General Secretary of the Catalan Police union: Sindicat de Policies de Catalunya. From Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Has been with the police since 1992.
EuroCOP is a key organization where police across Europe can denounce the precarious situation in which many police officers find themselves. Most police officers must work and serve the citizens without adequate resources.
I want politicians to be committed to the police. Police officers risk their lives every day on the streets to protect citizens. In exchange, they should be offered adequate labour conditions, decent wages to support their families and, of course, the necessary resources to serve citizens as they deserve.
