West End PR Clampdown Gathers Pace

San Antonio’s Policia Local are often criticised for not patrolling the West End but it seems that things are changing.

The forming of ‘ENEV’ – the special night force to tackle illegal activity on San An’s most infamous streets – has seen a serious clampdown which has been welcomed by many.

San Antonio council had promised to get tough on ‘P.R.s’ offering ridiculous drinks prices (which actively encourages youngsters to overindulge) and the first weeks of the summer season has seen a huge rise in the presence on the street by the boys in blue, not forgetting Lala the dog. 

Bars that in the past seemed immune to ‘denuncias’ are now collecting them on an almost nightly basis. It still hasn’t stopped the activity, in fact in a comedy moment on Monday night the Mayor, Pep Tur Cires, who was out on a walkabout, was offered a drinks deal by a P.R., oh how I would have loved to have seen that!

Suffice to say, the promised clampdown is progressing well with one local bar owner commenting “a few more weeks of this and the town should be rid of these people constantly hassling tourists”.

  1. Martin, I enjoy your posts, informative, to the point and without the normal inflammatory rhetoric that can abound on Iviza websites but I see that the female (?) wrist band sellers are still active by the Town Beach.

    1. Such a shame with this lot, ive been travelling to ibiza for the last 25 years or so and this group is the only thing that spoils it for me, cant believe the authorities seem to turn a blind eye to this day light mugging of vulnerable naive tourists, They are not sellers but con artists who will only work in groups to bully passers by!!

  2. excellent but what about those prowling around looking to mug tourists along the adjoining alleys. There was at least 4 attempted muggings/assaults by the same gang of youths over last weekend 12th-14th May . we were attacked walking past the old unused Chinese .
