Prague’s municipal police will increase the number of officers patrolling the centre of the capital, the mayor of the Prague 1 district, Oldřich Lomecký, told reporters on Wednesday. Mr Lomecký said Prague Mayor Tomáš Hudeček promised funds to hire at least 16 officers. The decision comes in a reaction to noise complaints outside bars and clubs in some parts of central Prague. The district of Prague 1 is also planning to ban taxis from certain streets during night to further reduce noise in those areas, the mayor said.
