The latest wave of violent incidents that have taken place at night in Cala Rajada have sparked concern among local residents.
The fights over the past two consecutive weekends have generated widespread unease among the local community and concern among politicians.

As a result, Capdepera Council, the Local Police, the Central Government Delegation and the Guardia Civil have set up a joint coordinated taskforce to restore security in the area.
The main objective of this local meeting is to analyse the current situation, share experiences of similar cases in other parts of Mallorca, exchange information and put strict measures in place to restore law and order.
