Ibiza to introduce ‘Party Detectives’ as Covid cases rise

The new version of undercover policing has arrived. The Spanish government is actively recruiting foreigners to become “party detectives” whose job will be to infiltrate illegal parties in Ibiza as Covid-19 cases begin to rise.

The decision comes after the Balearic Islands seemed destined back in June to have a summer of events. However, after being green-listed by England last month and planning phased re-openings, places such as Ibiza have seen a spike in cases and have had to implement more restrictions throughout July.

There have been reports of illegal parties taking place within small areas on the islands. The “party detectives” role is designed to ease the workload of the current police department. These detectives will go into illegal raves dressing casually like the other attendees. They will report to authorities if any lockdown restrictions have been violated.

“I have no doubt that it will be underway this summer. First, because it is our obligation to have it, it is a necessity to safeguard the health situation in Ibiza. Illegal holidays are not only a problem of public order, which has always been, but now they pose an obvious risk to people’s health. – Mariano Juan Colomar (Minister of the Territory), Periodico De Ibiza

The government is looking for people ranging from 30 to 40 years old for the position.

Hey everyone! I was blessed to have the opportunity to join the WRY team in 2020. I edit WRY's Youtube content and am also a writer for the website. I have been a massive fan in the EDM scene for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to see some iconic moments in person. Some of my favorite artists are Avicii, Martin Garrix, Krewella, The Chainsmokers, and KSHMR. I absolutely love to attend live shows. I try to spend almost every week at some kind of live event or festival (if not in person, at least watching online). And its a guarantee you can always catch me at Ultra Miami every year! Thank you for all the support! Follow me on Twitter to see which show I will be at next! Hopefully I can see you at an event or festival soon!
