TWENTY Manacor Local Police will become plainclothes officers in a bid to improve the image of the town to tourists. Officers are set to start working from next week on the coast and in urban areas. They will ensure that the streets and parks are kept clean, urban furniture in good condition, that waste is properly collected and disposed of and that the town is safe.
Pet owner’s should ensure that they clean up after their pet’s excrement in public areas, as these undercover cops will be handing out fines ranging from €50 to €3,000 depending on the violation and the number of violations incurred.
Signs and notices will be installed encouraging citizens to care for the green areas and to pick up dog droppings.
They will also be monitoring the consumption of alcohol in public.
“Up until know we have tried to get people to comply via information booklets, but the time has come to enforce the law,” stated the town hall.
