Safety in Mallorca

The national police force, the’ Policia Nacional’ keep law and order in urban areas. Some hotels have their own tourist-friendly ‘Policia Turistica’. If you require a police headquarters request for ‘la comisaria’ and for cops assistance simply call ‘092’ or ‘122’ free from any call box (telephone cabin).

To help prevent crime:

– Do not carry more cash compared to you require
– Do not leave valuables on beach or poolside
– Beware of pickpockets in markets, visitor views or crowded locations
– Avoid strolling alone in dark alleys in the evening

Keep in mind: criminal rate is very low and Mallorca is usually extremely safe for both kids and also adults
