THE Guardia Civil in the Balearics  have called for British police officers to be sent to some tourist resorts popular with British holidaymakers, in other-words Magalluf and San Antonio in Ibiza. The Calvia council are putting scores of additional police officers on the streets of Magalluf this summer and CCTVcameras are being installed at key points. The Guardia Civil have also been given greater resources for Magalluf for the summer season. The list goes on. I have heard that the British Army´s 16th Air Assault brigade has also been put on standby for operations in Punta Ballena if needed. Obviously, I am joking about the Paras  but it does appear that the local authorities are doing everything in their power to rid Magalluf of some of its ills.  How many police officers are needed in Magalluf? Well obviously hundreds and the hard pressed rate payer of Calvia is picking up the bill.  I have some sympathy for the Calvia council. They have limited powers and they are trying to do something about Magalluf with flood-lights on the beach, more police and security cameras. What is needed in Magalluf is a code of conduct. It is a party resort and no-one wants to take the fun out of Magalluf but everythinng should be within the realms of  the law. The police need to enforce the law and the business community and visiting tourists need to take note.  A crackdown is needed and I would urge the local authorities to try and sort out the prostitution problem.
