Pattaya and tourist police made a big show of launching a pre-Christmas crime crackdown.

Pol. Col. Somchai Teerapatpaisan, deputy chief of Tourist Police Division 1, dispatched officers from two Tourist Police stations and Pattaya Police Station to fan out across Pattaya Beach from their formation at the mouth of Soi 13.



He said officers will patrol the beach vigorously from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. to prevent crimes against Thai and foreign tourists especially to prevent transgender thieves from victimizing tourists and curb prostitution on the beach.
