Presided over by Balearic Islands Institute of Public Safety director Vicenç Martorell and CCPPL deputy chair and chief of citizen safety in Santa Eulària des Riu Juan Carlos Rosselló, the encounter had a mix of in-person and online attendees, with regional director of emergencies Jaime Barceló tuning in virtually.

Formentera’s chief of interior, Josep Marí, welcomed participants. The CCPPL was conceived as a way to facilitate information sharing between police departments in the Pine Islands and hammer out joint policies and priorities. One motion brought before the CCPPL which received unanimous backing was a call for the Balearic School of Public Administration (EBAP) to host a one-off police training course on Eivissa to help would-be officers prepare for selective exams.

In addition to discussing internal work-related matters, attendees viewed a presentation about police management to coordinate law enforcement responses across the Balearic Islands.
