Palma council is under fire again over citizen safety, despite the local authority's concerted effort to improve policing on the streets. Majorca Unionist party city councillors have rounded on the mayor over the lack of security measures in the Palma neighbourhood of La Soledad. Councillors yesterday recommended that extra police be placed on patrol in the area in order to improve citizen security levels. There were also calls for the neighbourhood police station to be open longer hours and for a general clean up of the area to be launched in order to help boost the spirits of the worried local population. The Majorca Unionists said that Soleded is a prime example of a Palma suburb and how they have been slowly falling to pieces over recent years with the city council failing to look after certain neighbourhoods while focusing all its attention on the city centre. The opposition councillors claim that there is a general and growing sense of insecurity in the capital which is spreading via word of mouth “but in La Soledad the situation is even worse because the area is not even cleaned.”
