At the same time, the Minister of Citizen Protection, Takis Theodorikakos, announced on Wednesday morning that new changes will be implemented.

"We are making a number of changes to the police, releasing officers from off-duty to return to their services. 150 DIAS (motorcycle unit) men and women return immediately and the number of patrols increases significantly," Theodorikakos said.

"There has been a clear order to increase patrols and it has been achieved for a long time," added the Minister of Citizen Protection when speaking to SKAI.

As he emphasised, "from the first day I took over, my main concern is for the police to strengthen their presence in the neighbourhoods. Is it true that it was enhanced or not?"

Finally, he said that in January there will be reshuffles.
