Controversial Greek Police Teams Disbanded by SYRIZA Back at Work

November 6, 2019

ATHENS – After being shut down by the former ruling Radical Left SYRIZA and was accused of letting them run amok, the Greek Police’s new restructured motorcycle-riding Delta squads are set to hit the streets again.

Initially, some 50 officers will be dispatched in tandem teams on motorcycles that are designed to be rapid response units to answer calls and patrol to show police are at the ready to answer calls.
