TEULADA-MORAIRA will again have Tourist Police (Politur) officers on the beat this year.
The Tourist Police (Politur) progamme, aimed at boosting public safety for tourists and residents alike, was well-received and very successful last year, said Teulada mayor Antoni Joan Bertomeu.
It was introduced for the first time in 2014 with two Politur officers on duty between August and October.
“A huge number of residents told us how pleased they were with the service,” Bertomeu revealed.
This year there will be four Politur officers on the Teulada and Moraira streets who will operate full-time from April until September, the mayor said.
The officers, who speak several languages between them, have also had first aid training. They will be there to provide the type of specialist personal attention required to deal with the needs and problems of both residents and visitors that can arise in a tourist area, Bertomeu added.
