Police officer drives patrol cars for years without driving license

A police officer from Vila do Conde, Portugal, had been driving police patrol cars for several years without a license. The case was made public by ‘Jornal de Noticias’, which says that his colleagues suspected of this irregularity. With the entry of new elements in the police station the silence was over and they decided to report the matter to management.

In addition to that fact, it is still a matter of concern the way the agent has been getting to work everyday without a driving license. The 50 year old agent owns a car and has been driving it to work over the years.

Although a criminal investigation was opened, the agent 50 continues to work. The commander of the PSP (Public Security Police) of Vila do Conde ordered the collection and analysis of last years schedule in order to understand how often the agent was in fact driving official vehicles.
