PALMA'S local police force will deploy a special force for the All Saints day festivities from today. It will consist of traffic control and observation around the cemeteries of Palma, closing internal access roads in the municipal cemetery and traffic control in the Cami de Ca l'Ardiaca. The special force will be operational until November 1, increasing the observation around the municipal cemetery and the cemeteries of San Jordi, Establiments, La Vileta and Genova. The director general of the Citizen Security department, Jose Ramon Orta, said that this force will have a total of 60 officers today and tomorrow, 48 officers on October 30 and 31 and 76 officers on November 1, which is a bank holiday. These officers will be distributed between morning and afternoon shifts. Orta recommended that people “do not wait until the last minute to buy flowers”, as their sale in Calle Luis Vives will only be authorised on October 31 and November 1 from 8am to 6pm. The sale of flowers in other streets and public places is prohibited. At the same time, the director general of Citizen Security added that it is better to use public transport, as with the works going on to construct the “green space” in Sa Riera, works to widen the Camino de Jesus and works around the municipal cemetery, the parking for private vehicles is very limited in these areas. Because of this, on November 1 EMT (Palma's bus company) will run a special bus service. This bus will travel between the Puerta San Antonio to the ONO Stadium, passing the municipal cemetery, according to the deputy mayor of Infrastructures, Marina Sans, who added that the frequency of this line will be around 20 minutes and it will be free for citizens. At the same time a parking area for disabled people will be set up in Cami de Ca l'Ardiaca, opposite the main entrance to the municipal cemetery, although they will also be able to park opposite the Son Valenti morgue.
