A career in the Valencian Community and a sentence
Piris Perpén’s career has traditionally been linked to the Valencian Community, although he has only been in charge of the Valencia Provincial Police Station for only four months.

The sanction proposed by the agents responds to the concept of “infringement of duties or obligations inherent in the police post or function, when they occur in a serious or overt manner.” Said proposal of sanction is benevolent if it is attended to that this type of serious offense is punished with between five days and 3 months of employment and salary and the Disciplinary Regime only asks for 20 days for Piris Perpén, chief commissioner, the highest ranking in the Corps National Police.
