No Suspected Sex Workers Found During Pattaya Tourist Police’s Inspection, According to Police

Pattaya —

Pattaya Tourist Police were satisfied after finding no illegal prostitutes during yesterday’s tour around risky spots.

The inspection, which aimed to stifle illegal prostitution and came after complaints from concerned citizens claiming prostitutes were operating in Pattaya, took place at midnight on January 14th and was led by Pol. Lt. Col. Pichaya Kheawpluang. The police patrolled around risky spots such as Beach Road and Walking Street to look for suspects and put flyers on venues’ front gates to warn tourists to “Be aware of their belongings and don’t trust strangers.”

Tourist Police identified risky places in Pattaya as crowded tourist attractions, dark and/or deserted places as well as Pattaya Beach.

Pol. Lt. Col. Pichaya told The Pattaya News that he would install more lights in these places and repair all broken CCTV cameras or cut down obstructive tree branches to increase visibility.

As of last night, he said he did not find any potential suspects for prostitution but would continue to patrol on a regular basis to keep tourists safe.
