Poland | Kielce | Police training – practical follow-up
Kielce WITD, who attended our training in January 2016, invited us to take part in a joint action of ITD and Police by one of local cattle markets. It was a very interesting day: according to division of roles, Police were stopping smaller vehicles (under 3.5 t), and ITD – big ones. The Policemen, who had not had our training before, were happy to see our materials and to consult us on every stopped transport. ITD inspections were fruitful: two of controlled vehicles belonged to transporters already known for notorious violation of Reg. (EC) 1/2004. One of them was severely fined. In case of the second transport, with adult cattle loaded on double decks in the swanneck, tied by the horns and without a partition on the lower deck, Veterinary Inspection was called and the authorities ruled to return the transport to the market, unload the vehicle, and load back allowed number of animals in proper conditions.
