THE director general of the National Police and the Guardia Civil, Joan Mesquida, will be in Majorca today to welcome 154 new members of the National Police force to Palma and also tour the National Police headquarters in Palma. Mesquida, a former Balearic government minister, will start his visit at 10am this morning in Algaida where he will inspect the new Guardia Civil headquarters which is being built and then later, at 11.30, preside over the swearing-in ceremony in Palma accompanied by the central government delegate to the Balearics, Ramón Socías. The 154 new recruits to Palma are part of a total 2.034 National Police cadets who have been sworn into the force across the country since the start of the week. After the Palma ceremony, Mesquida will travel to Sa Pobla where he will sign an agreement with the local council to build a new Guardia Civil headquarters in the town before ending the day with a visit to the Palma headquarters. The new police will be welcomed here in the Balearics.
Crime is on the rise and there is a continual shortfall of National Police and Guardia Civil despite efforts to try and fill the gaps.
