The mayor of Calvià, Alfonso Rodríguez Badal, congratulated all the distinguished people and made public recognition of the police actions carried out in a season with a high occupation and tourist activity, and a high number of requirements. For this reason, he has made a special mention to the work of the entire Local Police of Calvià, with his boss, Justino Trenas, at the helm.
The mayor also noted that both, the citizens and the people who visit Calvià throughout the year, perceive the municipality as a safe place, despite its complexity and the increase in population by up to five fold in the high season.
On his behalf, the deputy mayor for Security, Andreu Serra, stressed that the Local Police of Calvià has its main asset in the commitment, public service and professionalism.
The head of the Local Police, Justino Trenas, has made special mention of the job consolidation process that will put an end to the high interim index of the Local Police force of Calvià and the regulation of early retirement by the local police that seems will be materialised at the beginning of next year. In addition, he has taken stock of the summer season from the security point of view and highlighted that the data handled by the Ministry of the Interior regarding crime amount to 25% the decrease in crime compared to the previous season.
One of the main security challenges carried out was the joint security device established on the occasion of the World Football Cup, which resulted in zero incidents and which was a sample of the excellent degree of coordination existing between the Local Police and the Civil Guard. However, Trenas recalled that the local administration of Calvià continues working on the reversion of the "drunkenness or excesses tourism" model towards a higher quality model, in which uncivic behaviours and leisure associated with the aggressive offer and mass consumption of alcohol are eradicated.
