"Yesterday they had a big PR exercise at a Central in Bangkok...." my god how they love those sorts of mass productions. And just think of all the tourists here now who weren't getting any help because all the TP's were off for the photo op

The headline sounds more like an advert for body guarding or close protection (for a fee of course). Has anyone here ever received worthwhile help from the tourist police? And for what reason?

Thankfully my only dealings with the police have been a few (legitimate) motoring tickets.

Tourism Min dispatches officers and canines to oversee safety at countdown spots
by Namo Vananupong

BANGKOK (NNT) - Tourism safety promotion officers and their canines are being dispatched to various locations throughout Thailand in order to ensure public safety and convenience at New Year’s countdown events. The Ministry of Tourism and Sports is meanwhile urging service providers to charge foreign tourists similar rates to what locals are required to pay.

 

Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn presided over a ceremony to place tourism safety promotion officials in front of the Central World shopping center in Bangkok.

 

So far this month, about 2 million foreign tourists have entered the kingdom, which has received some 11 million international travelers in total for the entire year.

 

Around 30 million domestic trips have meanwhile been made by local tourists and Thailand is expecting 1.5 trillion baht in total tourism revenue for 2022. The government also said it is targeting 20 million foreign tourist arrivals next year.

 

With China expected to “reopen” on January 8th, Minister Phipat urged business and service providers to charge tourists similar rates to those that apply to local Thais in order to help promote Thailand’s image as a nation of good hosts.

 

According to the Tourist Police Bureau, about 100 officers and police canines will oversee the safety of tourists at various locations throughout the kingdom during the New Year’s festivities period.

 

The Tourist Police Bureau said officers will pay special attention to countdown venues while tourists can report incidents to the 24-hour hotline number 1155.
