Fortunately, there are not many cases of loss of minors in the beaches of Dénia every year. In 2015 there were only four cases with minors between 5 and 10 years old, which were successfully resolved thanks to the efforts of the Local Police. Although they are solved on all occasions, the bad time that parents or those who are in charge of minors have is not pleasant.
That is why the local police in Dénia distributed for free this summer wristbands families for children and their parents are easily contactable in case of loss. As explained Chief of the local police Mayor, Jose Martinez Espasa, these bracelets will be available for families in tourist offices in Denia and local police. To acquire, family leave phone numbers and an address where you can locate them will be associated with the number of bracelet so that facilitate the meeting in case of loss of children to be able to quickly locate their parents.
For Martínez Espasa "It's a simple idea that can avoid parents having a hard time". For the moment they have been prepared 500 bracelets that have begun to distribute already enabled in Dénia points where the families of the steps will be informed.
