Officers from Alicante police force will be responsible for monitoring coastal areas, sand, the coastline and pedestrian walkways in Postiguet, Albufereta/Almadraba, Saladar/Urbanova, San Juan and Tabarca and will patrol them daily between 10 am and 8 pm.
Councillor for Safety and Security of Alicante City Council, José Ramón González, said: “It is important post-covid that we organise and give effective security on the beaches this year as there are no restrictive measures.”
He added: “Alicante has a police force of which we are all proud, it’s one of the best in Spain and this summer they will save lives again as in past years.
“They are trained, dedicated and very professional. We hope that this summer will be very good in terms of occupation, we can already see a significant volume of people and very high temperatures”.
Officers will be on patrol from May 30 to September 18 and will be providing extra surveillance for the beaches of Alicante.
