THE Police director general, the Association of Spanish Travel Agents, the Spanish Hotel Federation and the Association of Resort Hotels, have set up a special commission to ensure the very highest levels of security in the country's tourist resorts while constantly monitoring the situation. Regional police chiefs, travel agent and hotel association representatives will be working together in the key tourist resorts to ensure maximum security for tourists, prime targets being petty criminals and con artists. In accordance with new security measures approved by the police and the government last year, hotels in key areas will be connected to police files, enabling hotels to check a client's identification and whether or not he or she is wanted by the authorities. Jesús Martínez Millán, president of the Spanish Association of Travel Agents said yesterday “it's vital to provide the maximum level of security for our visitors, especially as Spain is now listed as one of the most unsafe countries with rising crime rates.” Millán added that he is convinced the new commission will prove successful with all sectors in the resorts involved in an “integrated” crackdown on crime, constantly in contact with one another. In accordance with the new measures, all resort police stations will need to have interpreters in order to help foreign visitors.
