Tourist Police Division has stepped up patrol throughout Khaosan Road area in Bangkok to prevent and suppress crime against tourists.

khao san roadTourist Police Division Commander Pol Maj Gen Surachet Hakphan said police had tightened security in the capital city and other provinces following the deadly attacks in France. Military officials and city inspectors have also joined the campaign.

Authorities focus their crime prevention and suppression on tourist spots, as tourists are likely to fall victim to conmen. The move was also aimed at showing the country’s readiness to be a good host for visitors whose number could skyrocket after the arrival of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

Those spotting any suspicious activity or crime against tourists are advised to call Tourist Police hotline 1154 round the clock.
