Senate passes National Police Organic Bill
On Wednesday, 5 November 2014 the Senate approved a legislative proposal for the Organic Law that will govern the National Police and sets six and seven-year limits on the time a police agent can remain in a post. In the case of generals, the time limit is 10 years with the exception of generals who have been appointed chief, deputy chief or inspector general of the Police. Retirement is required at the end of that service.
The head of the Superior Police Board is the Minister of Interior and Police and in his absence, the Attorney General of the Republic. The minimum time for a promotion is four years, with the count starting after cadet training.
The legislation says that the role of the National Police is to protect lives, people’s physical integrity and safety, guaranteeing the free exercise of their rights and freedoms. The bill was studied by a joint commission during the last session of the legislature but it expired and must now go to the Chamber of Deputies for another debate.
