National Police Chief Police General Adul Sangsingkaew has issued a document commanding police across the country to be aware of crimes related to sex during the Valentine season. Risk areas such as entertainment venues, motels, public parks, and local communities will be thoroughly inspected. Information and recommendation leaflets will be distributed to youths, who are most likely to be the victims of the crimes, as well as teachers.
Police General Adul said teenagers may not only become victims of sex crimes, but also drug abuse and human trafficking.
Every year during Valentine’s Day, many youths, particularly girls, are lured into having unlawful sexual relations as the day signifies love.
