Local Police today presented the balance of services for 2021, a year in which they have received a total of 9,083 service demands (10% more than in 2020).
The security serices have been co-ordinating with the Territorial Directorate of Tourism in order to respond to noise complaints caused by occupants of holiday homes.
Chief intendant, José Antonio Monfort, has detailed the type of interventions carried out, the administrative police being the one that has experienced the greatest growth (3,617 services, which represents 41% of the total). One of the factors behind this growth is noise complaints (up 40% compared to 2020) to a total of 1,673, the vast majority registered during the summer months.
Of the services and inspections carried out for this reason, 377 ended in complaints and another 68 in tourist homes.
In fact, this was the main problem during the holiday period, so they have already contacted the Territorial Directorate of Tourism to coordinate an action protocol in the face of a problem that, they hope, will deflate with the end of the restrictions to tourism or nightlife.
However, Javea police already has a system in place so that either the tenant or the holiday home operator end up sanctioned and repeat offenders may even end up losing their license.
They are also aware that, after the summer experience, many neighbourhood communities are regulating the conditions of tourist rentals.
