AROUND 100 hotels in
This is part of a pilot scheme that started this week.
If deemed a success it will be rolled out in all hotels across the island.
“If a guest has been the victim of a crime, they can fill in the report at their hotel with the help of staff who can translate for them,” explained government delegate Jose Maria Rodriquez.
“They only need to go to the station to sign the report.”
Staff at the participating hotels attended a course on how to fill out the reports and help guests.
When tourists wish to fill out a police report, hotel personnel can do it via National Police web portal or in the case of a Guardia Civil report, they fill out a form and send it to the barracks, according to the president of the Mallorca Hotel Federation, Inma de Benito.
Up until now, hotel workers could only inform tourists on where the nearest station was.
On many occasions tourists would not go and fill out a crime report, according to Benito.
This measure will help to ensure that all crimes are reported.
