(MENAFN - Morocco World News) Casablanca will have its administrative police in the coming days. Authorities in Morocco's biggest city will deploy administrative security forces in five districts of the city to maintain public safety.
Moroccan daily Al Massae reported on January 11 that the administrative police will ensure the maintenance of safety, sanitation and compliance with general rules of urban planning and public space.
The security forces will be deployed, for a pilot project, in five districts of Casablanca: Anfa, Sidi Belyout, Maarif, Moulay Rachid and Sidi Othmane. The project's budget is estimated at MAD 3.7 million, and will be carried out by seven sworn officers and 70 supervisors.
In a statement to Al Massae, Mohammed Abourrahim, deputy mayor of Casablanca said that a new organic law will pay close attention to the administrative police, insofar as it is intended to assist the president of the commune in his prerogatives related to hygiene, and public space services.
This project will be expended across the city's districts within five years, with a team of 311 agents and an estimated budget of MAD 14.3 million.
