West Midlands Police officers will be dispatched to party destinations Ibiza and Magaluf to help Spanish police deal with victims and offenders from the UK.
A sergeant and a constable will work alongside officers from the Guardia Civil during a two-week trial.
The officers will spend a week in Magaluf in Majorca followed by seven days in San Antonio, Ibiza.
Gosh! I thought we had a police manpower crisis?
Well, that’s the impression I get from Twitter, anyway…
The trial, funded by the Foreign Office, will see the two officers patrol alongside Spanish colleagues in tourist hotspots including beaches, airport terminals and town centres.
The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) said they will assist the Guardia Civil when British nationals are victims of crime, support any criminal investigations where Britons are victims, witnesses or offenders, and help British nationals who are victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse or other serious offences.
Strange, then, that they don’t stay here to do that..?
