CREAM – “More safety” was the request that came from those who walk in the square of the railway station, once the commuters have dwindled; but also by the many who frequent the sidewalks of the nearby bus terminal. And the answer was not long in coming.
THREE PATROLS FROM MILAN. From Milan, the other evening, three patrols of the Lombardy Crime Prevention Department landed in the city. And the six policemen joined their colleagues who, he assures the assistant commissioner Bruno Pagani, already guard Largo Martiri della Libertà every day, at times considered critical. That is to say after sunset, when it is not uncommon to run into young people with too much alcohol in their bodies, or worse, among the gardens and the quays.
100 IDENTIFIED PEOPLE. About a hundred people were identified by the dozen agents, during the extraordinary service started at 20.30 and continued up to one. And if the railway yard was the first stop of the squad of uniformed policemen, coordinated during the night by an inspector in force at the offices in via Macallé, the crews of the four cars with the colors of the police soon extended their range of action to the nearby piazzale delle Rimembranze, overlooked by the public gardens of Porta Serio. That is to say another of the areas that, despite the proximity to the historic center, in the past ended up in the spotlight of the news for “unsavory” presences.
L’the aim of the patrols was prevention, as expressed in the name of the department employed. And judging by the absence of unpleasant episodes during the evening, read vandalism or the like, it seems to have been achieved. Already in recent days, the staff of the Flying Squad had further tightened the circle of inspections around the station. As evidenced by the reports to the Prefecture for drunkenness, but also from the complaints for the violation of the street papers signed by the commissioner, which had the terminal as a theater. In addition to the seizures of small quantities of drugs.
