Redován Town Council, through the head of the Local Police, has participated in the coordination meeting between the police chiefs of Callosa de Segura, Cox-Granja and Redován. The three commanders attended an initiative of the Department of Public Safety of the Callosa Town Council with the aim of coordinating security between the three towns.
The aim of the meeting was to establish a security coordination plan between the three neighbouring towns. In this way, coordinated traffic checkpoints will be set up jointly and at random in the border areas. The Councillor for Security of the City Council of Callosa, Rocio Cuadrado has indicated that “we are convinced that this initiative will work very well in the control of traffic and security between the three municipalities. The understanding and work with the local police of Cox-Granja and Redován is fantastic, and this will have a positive impact on the safety of the population of the three municipalities.
Callosa de Segura, Cox-Granja and Redován have a combined population of more than 35,000 inhabitants, in addition to the itinerant passage of thousands of people who pass through the municipalities on a daily basis. The mayoress of Redován, Nely Ruiz, said that this type of coordinated action between the local police “is very important, and represents a further step in the close collaboration that the local police of our municipalities have maintained for years, as well as with the State Security Forces and Bodies”. The Redovan councillor added that, in addition, “it allows us to reinforce the traffic and security controls that until now we have been carrying out with our own resources, but with more staff thanks to the addition of agents from the three towns”.
From Cox Town Council, the councillor for Public Safety, Ramón Pertusa, said that “the coordinated work between the three municipalities is a guarantee to improve, even if possible, the quality of the service that benefits the citizens” while highlighting “the great work that has been done for years and the result is embodied in this agreement that improves resources and makes us more efficient and effective by working as a team”.
Redován 14/1/2021. The Local Police of Redován have arrested an individual as the alleged perpetrator of an attempted robbery inside a commercial establishment in the town. The incident took place on 10 January at around half past eleven at night, when a neighbour called the police headquarters to report that there were sounds of banging inside the establishment in question.
The officers immediately went to the shop, where they could see at first that the entrance shutter had been forced and the glass of the door had been broken. The quick reaction of the neighbour and the police intervention allowed them to surprise the alleged perpetrator of the attempted robbery still inside the shop, who had crouched and hidden in an attempt to go unnoticed by the officers without succeeding. The man was arrested and handed over to the Guardia Civil in Callosa de Segura for further investigation.
He is the third person arrested by the Local Police so far this year for similar acts. The other two people were apprehended in the early hours of 1 January when they were also allegedly preparing to steal inside a commercial establishment. In addition to this, at the end of the year, the perpetrators of a series of acts of vandalism in the building of the Third Age were located.

The fair is organised by the Town Hall in collaboration with the Vega Baja del Segura territory brand and the Alicante Provincial Council. The mayor of Commerce, Maite Martínez, has assured that “our commercial fabric needs all the support possible and that is why we wanted to recover an event that in 2019 was a great success that we hope to repeat this time, yes, with respect to all security measures in front of the Covid-19”. Martínez reminded the attendees that they must have their Covid passport in order, as the regulations require them to apply for it at events where more than 500 people are present. In addition, the mask is obligatory in places where the safety distance cannot be respected. The municipal official added that in the 17 exhibitors “it will be possible to buy both Christmas products from our bakeries and gifts of different kinds from our shops, another way of encouraging shopping in Redován as we have done in previous campaigns”. The fair will open its doors on Saturday at 11.00 am and then start the gastronomic contest ‘Grandfather chef Redován’. In the afternoon, the Unión Musical will bring Christmas carols to the square from 16.30 and from 18.30 children will be able to hand their letters to Father Christmas in person.

The councillor for Education, Rebeca Martínez, explained that the work is expected to take twelve months to complete and once finished it will allow us to respond to the educational needs of Redován”. Among the agreements adopted in the meetings prior to the start of the works, the Calle Doctor Marañón will be closed to traffic for the duration of the works. The town planning councillor, José Nájar, has indicated that this decision has been taken “as a safety measure and with the aim of disrupting as little as possible the daily work of the school, which will of course continue as usual while the works are being carried out”. The building project, which is included in the Edificant Plan, involves the creation of four classrooms for Bachillerato and two for Secondary, space for teachers, another smaller classroom and a space for computer classes. The IES will have a new building with a ground floor and two storeys, with a floor area of 1,369 square metres. The company awarded the contract will carry out the work for 1.6 million euros plus VAT.

Redován Town Council has expressed its satisfaction at having a response to what has been, for almost a decade, one of the main demands of the Consistory to the Government of Spain: the construction of a roundabout at kilometre point 691.800 of the N-340. The mayoress, Nely Ruiz, recalled that both her predecessor in office, Emilio Fernández, and herself, have demanded this roundabout from all those in charge of the Ministry, the General Directorate of Roads or the Government Sub-delegation who have been in office since 2014. The roundabout will be built to the south of the crossing of Barrio San Carlos and will have two service roads on the margins to rearrange access to the industrial estate. The works include the conditioning of intersections, rearrangement of accesses and treatment of the crossing. For Ruiz, “this infrastructure is going to boost our industrial area, as it is located in an unbeatable location, with good communication with the A-7, and with the roundabout we will be able to make it more permeable and provide traffic flow, which is the only thing it lacks”. The mayoress of Redován wanted to recall all the work that has been done, “because the section of the N-340 that affects us has always appeared on the lists of black spots on the Spanish road network, and although the Town Hall has taken the measures that were in our power to attract companies to the industrial estate, and we have succeeded, you only have to take a look at our industrial area, having good access is also very important to continue to grow”. The works are in the tendering phase and will be executed together with a second roundabout in Albatera, at the height of the Mos del Bou Industrial Estate and with a joint budget of 2.22 million euros aimed at improving road safety and traffic functionality at intersections.
