The Local Police of Santa Cruz de Tenerife raised the weekend 18 acts of infringement to premises that did not comply with the restrictions imposed by alert level 3 covid.
The agents proposed for sanction five locals that did not comply with the closing time, three for not respecting the maximum capacity allowed, and ten for maintaining its activity with clients inside thereof.
In addition, the Local Police intervened in two kiosks on the beach of Las Teresitas to enforce the regulations, in one case due to “the permissiveness of the staff” regarding the respect of safety distances and the mandatory use of a mask, as well as for leaving to the clientele who danced in the area.
In the other case, the agents intervened in the face of complaints from multiple people about the volume of a DJ’s music. In addition to this, they found that the premises did not comply with the location limitations for tables and chairs.
As in previous weeks, the Local Police took minutes to several establishments or multi-stores that function as 24-hour premises, for non-compliance with closing hours or the lack of a license for said activity.
In total, the Santa Cruz Local Police raised 48 minutes last week, conditioned by the celebration of the San Juan bonfires and the elevation to phase 3 of the covid alert level in Tenerife.
The closure of all activities, except for the essential ones, at night has caused the “deactivation” of the main points where the consumption of alcoholic beverages took place on public roads.
Despite this, for this reason 11 minutes were processed for bottles in other parts of the municipality such as Las Indias park, Las Mesas park or the Tahodio highway.
In addition, the Local Police has intervened before the inconvenience caused in parties celebrated in homes, attending to thirty cases of this type.
In relation to the prevention in the consumption and possession of narcotic substances not included in the list of health incidents, 29 acts of infringement were processed last week.
The councilor delegate for Citizen and Road Safety of the Santa Cruz City Council, Evelyn Alonso, points out in a statement that the past was “a complicated week”, despite which “most of the people have known what to do and how to reconcile all these situations responsibly”
