German police have been ordered to maintain a permanent presence at an asylum center in Suhl due to rising crime in the community and unrest inside the facility, according to reports.
Georg Maier, interior minister for the state of Thuringia, announced that officers will now guard the Suhl refugee accommodation 24-7 and also implement increased patrols in the surrounding neighborhoods.
"Meanwhile, Suhl's Lord Mayor André Knapp (CDU) submitted a petition to the Thuringian state parliament on Monday to close the accommodation," Junge Freiheit reports.
"The 1,500 signatures required for a public hearing were significantly exceeded with 1,900 signatories. The reason for this is the ongoing crime in the vicinity of the home such as property damage, theft and break-ins."
The residence center has reportedly been the scene of frequent violent episodes.
In December, police and emergency response teams were deployed to rescue staffers during a major revolt against quarantine orders.
Workers were forced to lock themselves inside a room as migrants wreaked havoc at the facility.
In March of 2020, chaos broke out after migrants were told to quarantine due to a COVID outbreak.
Dozens of young men flying an ISIS flag threatened to set fire to the accommodation, eventually using children as shields during a standoff with police, according to Junge Freiheit.
