MADRID’S recently created Tourist Police force had the chance to show its worth this Easter as visitors flocked to the capital city of Spain, filling up to 95 per cent of hotel rooms.
The new force, which is made up of approximately 60 officers who work to tend to the needs of visitors to the city in a variety of languages, is easily spotted as officers wear brightly coloured jackets with Tourist Police emblazoned on the back and can be seen patrolling near main attractions on white, three-wheeled Segways.
Based at Terminal Four of Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport to help visitors as soon as they arrive in the city, the force also has two mobile offices which can help deal with problems including reports and document loss, and contact consulates and embassies.
