Opportunist thieves and other criminals that operate at the party have done great deal of damage to the reputation of the island and this is a situation that could not continue. By integrating the Koh Phangan Police with members of other forces he believe adequate policing of the party is possible and travelers will be able to relax and enjoy the party without having to be concerned for their safety. As part of the new security measures the police were given scanning devices in order to check for illegal weapons.

British consulate representative Daniel Hamberd is also working with authorities to resolve problems arising from this popular party event and will travel to Koh Phangan as part of an ongoing scheme to keep the party trouble free.
