As part of its preparations for the Pattaya International Music Festival, the city repaired and installed 300 closed-circuit television cameras along the beachfront to enhance security.
About 100 new cameras between the Amari Resort and Bali Hai Pier were installed while other unmaintained cameras installed previously were repaired or reconnected to monitoring systems. The intent was to give law enforcement better tools to monitor security during the March 18-20 festival and catch any wrongdoers.

Beach vendor Thongrak Chaisit said petty crimes during past music festivals has been a problem. She said she was a bit relieved to find the city was stepping up security.
