Security and Emergencies
Torremolinos is a safe destination. The municipality has a local Police Force to guarantee safety in the streets (amongst other tasks), a National Police Station with agents specialised in public safety (shared with the Benalmadena municipality), and Beach Police agents who take care of the beach areas.
Should you be the victim of crime or encounter any problems, the police telephone number is 091, although in case of doubt, you are recommended to call 112, where they deal with all types of emergencies. In any case, in order to avoid any type of inconvenience, it is always advisable to keep an eye on your handbags and rucksacks while in busy places, refrain to leave belongings unattended for a long period of time, etc.
