FORTY-NINE hopefuls applied for one of Villajoyosa’s four vacancies – two male, two female – in the town’s Policia Local force.
Ten of the applicants were women and, like their male counterparts, they must pass six tests.
These include fitness, a psycho-technical evaluation, a theory exam, development exercises, knowledge of La Vila’s streets and proficiency in Valenciano.
Aspirants must then pass a medical to assess their height, weight, sharp-sightedness, locomotor skills and digestive system.
“These tests allow those interested in joining the Policia Local to access the selection process,” said Villajoyosa’s mayor Andreu Verdu.
Wishing the candidates good luck, Verdu added that the safety of the local population and tourists was a priority for Villajoyosa’s local government.
“We hope that the future incorporations will assist in enhancing the Policia Local’s functions,” he said.
The results of the round of tests will be published on the town hall’s website and will also appear in Alicante province’s Official Bulletin Alicante (BOP).
