Drug dealing

Residents in Portimão are calling for an increase in police numbers for the city following several reports of drug dealing activity.

Câmara meetings have already been held where the residents were able to express their concerns and hand in a petition requesting the presence of more police officers in the city.

Residents say the area near the old factory in the Rua de S. José is particularly concerning as drug dealing is carried out in full view of passers-by and addicts use the dark alleys to inject themselves, leaving behind the syringes.
