\ The call is for 66 places in Mallorca, 10 in Menorca and 10 in Eivissa, which are also open to applicants from Formentera.

The Govern de les Illes Balears, through the Balearic School of Public Administration, has announced with the publication in the Official Gazette of the Balearic Islands, the 43rd promotion of the basic training course for access to the category of local police for the year 2022.
Specifically, two groups have been announced for Mallorca, with a total of 66 places, one with 10 places in Menorca and 10 in Eivissa, also for applicants from Formentera. “The government is fulfilling its commitment to decentralise this course and offer it to all the islands to speed up its development and alleviate the existing shortage of local police officers,” said Mercedes Garrido, the councillor of the presidency, public service and equality.
The course will begin on 25 April for the three islands, while the second group on the island of Mallorca will start on 2 May. The course consists of 800 hours of theoretical and practical training, which is essential to achieve the rank of local police officer.
The course is open to those who have passed the competitive examination phase of a selective process to reach the category of local police officer and who have to be appointed as probationary civil servants by the municipal authority.
In this way, the Government continues its commitment to carry out training courses for the different categories, with the aim of responding to the demands of the local councils, strengthening the corps and reducing the shortage of local police officers in the Balearic Islands.
The aim of this course is to carry out and improve the education and training of local police officers in the Balearic Islands in order to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of public service and, in this way, the satisfaction of citizens.
