Bulgaria's popular southern Black Sea resort of Sunny Beach wants British police officers to patrol it during the next tourist season.
"We are sure this would be a fairly effective way of collaboration, because it would improve the tourists' security. It would create some respect in our foreign guests who break and demolish things, create conflicts and offend police officers," Georgi Nedelchev, chair of the Sunny Beach hotel owners' union, said.
Nedelchev was positive that the police force located at the resort cannot handle all issues created within it, having in mind that as many as 400 000 tourist flock there during the season's peak, Nikolchev has pointed out, as cited by the Cross news agency.
Nikolchev has met and discussed the issue with Detective Superintendent Neville Blackwood, a Police Adviser with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
The number of police officers needed on Bulgarian soil has to be determined, Blackwood has said. He has pointed out that the British police has been working very actively across UK resorts.
