The town councils of Tomelloso and Argamasilla de Alba have set up a Rural Guard night watch service, which will begin tonight, to prevent theft in the countryside in both municipalities. A service, explained the mayoress of the naighbouring town, Sonia González, and the councillors of Agriculture of Tomelloso and Argamasilla de Alba, Jesús Lara an Pilar Mateos, respectively, "much demanded by farmers and livestock farmers" in the area. The aim is to "reinforce", said González, the great work being carried out by the Civil Guard, Local Police and the Rural Guard services in these two towns, in the fight against theft in farms and livestock farms, in the countryside.

This initiative, added the Councillor for Agriculture, opens a line of cooperation between the Town Councils of both towns in the field of agriculture. Jesús Lara recalled that rural safety was one of the electoral promises made by the current municipal team of Tomelloso. In the same vein, both the Mayor and the Councillor for Agriculture of Argamasilla de Alba  have pointed out that this is a service to "prevent those criminal acts that could be committed on farms and livestock farms", especially now, in the summer period, when many harvesting operations take place "and farmers are un the position of having to protect the machinery, diesel or agricultural products that they have on their premises".
