On Thursday, David Abril of Més called for the Balearics to have its own police force, one along the lines of Catalonia's Mossos d'Esquadra. He made the call in light of the terrorist incidents in Barcelona and Cambrils, arguing that an autonomous police force would address the "vulnerability" of the Balearics. He considered the management of the national government's delegation in the Balearics (responsible for security) to be insufficient. The level of protection from the state security forces was therefore, in his view, also insufficient.
