This June will mark 2 years since the terrorist attack in Tunisia. We heard from the hearing at London's Royal Courts of Justice that "British lives could have been saved" if the local authorities were better prepared.

So the question has to asked. How real is the threat and how prepared are the Canary Island authorities for a copy cat terrorist attack in Playa del Ingles.

Many questions have to asked about the latest arrests of several individuals in Gran Canaria on charges relating to terrorism connected with ISIS or DAESH over the last few months.

According to the several well known British newspapers ISIS made direct threats to the Spanish resorts that attract many millions of visitors each year, very recent threats at that!

Corruption and police brutality are not exactly unknown events in mainland Spain, talking about such activities in a public way on a small Island is clearly harder.

So who listens to who and are the Spanish doing it there way and are enough serious professional resources being applied.
Pictured above are those who lost their lives on a beach, several of whom may have been saved if the local authorities were better prepared.

God forbid but with lone wolf attacks, often from radicalised locals could there be a blood bath on the beaches of Playa del Ingles in the near future?

According to several locals there has been no notable increase in visible police presence on either of the two main beaches in the Spanish resort of Playa del Ingles or its neighbouring Maspalomas beach areas despite some recent worrying local developments.

What police presence is there?

Well to protect the largest beach at Playa del Ingles there is a visible presence of up to two police cars, that's four police officers to protect up to 6000 tourists at any one time.

Known as the policia local these officers are equipped with single shot side arms.
The only police with anything approaching automatic rifles or small machine guns are the "Guardia Civil", a separate type of police who are never to be found anywhere near the beaches.
To the best of our knowledge the nearest Guardia station to the beaches is in El Tablero some 10-15 minutes drive the next town called Vecindario, some 15-20 minutes drive away. Coincidently where arrests were made recently of suspected terrorist activities.

Clearly a balance needs to be stuck, do they need to have a horrific tragedy before the Spanish Authorities actually put some more uniforms on the ground or are they concerned about more police affecting the resort and overall visitor numbers too much.

Some will say this is cynical questioning. However without being too cynical, based on many years of observation the later is very likely to be of the highest priority.

Of course they are doing the best they can, the question is it good enough; the answer to that in so many areas no it is not good enough!
