A new contingent of 115 National Police Officers will arrive in the Balearics on Thursday, March 2. Of these, 70 will join the force on Majorca, 25 will be based on Ibiza and the other 20 will be sent to Minorca, according to police sources.
In addition to these new officers, the Commissioner of Ibiza, Angel Mari, is leaving the post he has occupied for more than 20 years.
He will be replaced by Estanislao Perez, who has been head of the Citizens Brigade in the Police Headquarters in Palma since 1992.
Perez was sworn into his new post as Commissioner yesterday.
The plan is that at the end of October the number of officers in the Balearic National Police Corps (CNP) will have reached nearly 100 percent of the number planned for this autonomous region. This number was decided upon in the last planning session which took place more than five years ago.
In fact, on October 24 there will be 68 new officers in Palma. The rest of the new officers will join the police stations of Manacor (which will have six new officers), Cuitadella (ten new officers), Mahon (another ten) and Ibiza (52).
