21 Police sub-stations are in the process of being opened around Pattaya City as Region 2 Police open a total of 119 stations around the Eastern Region. The main concentration of the new Community Stations is in Pattaya due to its prominent tourist industry. Police Lieutenant General Panya, Region 2 Police Commissioner is determined to heavily reduce incidents of crime around Pattaya and believes these new sub-stations will help him achieve his aims. On Monday, we attended the opening of two local sub-stations, located at the Loy Lang Village in Naklua, North Pattaya and near the Sutawat Temple in East Pattaya. They will be open 24 hours a day and will be staffed by full-time officers and Police Volunteers, who will be sent out on routine patrols in known areas of high crime, around the clock.
