Following 34 years of service in the Hellenic Police Force, by decision of the Supreme Crisis Council, I am demobilized with the rank of Lieutenant General and I resign from the position of General Regional Police Director of Western Macedonia and from the Greek Police.
Καθ’ όλη τη διάρκεια της μακρόχρονης πορείας μου παρέμεινα προσηλωμένος στις αρχές και τις αξίες μου και είχα πάντοτε ως κυρίαρχο στόχο την προσφορά στους πολίτες με ταυτόχρονη ανάδειξη του ανθρώπινου προσώπου της Αστυνομίας.
I feel the need to thank and congratulate all the staff, ανεξαρτήτως βαθμού και θέσεως, of the Grevena Police Directorates, Of Kastoria, Kozani and Florina, but also my collaborators of the Staff of the General Directorate of Western Macedonia, for the perfect cooperation, the diligence and professionalism they have shown over time. We faced unprecedented situations. With self-denial and willingness to offer – και εν μέσω της πανδημίας του κορωνοϊού – preserved the region of Western Macedonia, as one of the safest areas in Greece, while contributing greatly to the protection of citizens' public health.
I wish all my colleagues, be healthy first and foremost and continue to provide, with the same mood and zeal to the citizens of Western Macedonia, maintaining a high level of security in the area.
in addition to, I would like to thank all the religious, policies, military, judicial and other authorities of Western Macedonia, for their effective cooperation and support, όπως επίσης και τους εκπροσώπους των Μ.Μ.Ε. for their partnership in developing a relationship of trust with citizens.
I leave satisfied having a clear conscience, that I met as much as possible the needs of the citizens of Western Macedonia and having largely fulfilled my goals.
End, I would like to thank you in public, as a minimum bid recognition, my wife, who supported me and supported me all these years of my career in the Hellenic Police Corps, as well as my two sons, that without their understanding and support I would not have achieved so much. in addition to, I would like to wish them a good career in their career as Greek Police Officers.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Lieutenant General e.o.th.
