Must have scared the hell out of an over-stayer or 2, thinking "Creest! they're coming for me!"

 

 

Didn't you read 'Big Joke" on TV? there are no over stayers in Thailand despite finding more and more every week. LOL

Witnessed usual police action yesterday, carrying out a U Turn at a junction that was clearly marked 'No U Turn', needless to say 20 odd vehicles followed him.  Police in action.

Pattaya has a beach?

Well, it has a lot of sand and water i.e. a 'beach'.

Very hot in the afternoons these days, the sun is very powerful, they're earning their salaries stomping around the beach in full uniform, even if it probably scares the children.

He said that with summer approaching it was important to gain tourists’ trust.

Strange that as far as foreign tourists go high season is just finishing - irrespective of whether this is summer or winter to a Thai.

Perhaps they meant Thai tourists.............🤔

Yes most likely...lots of weekend visitors from Bangkok..I've started going further south towards Sattahip

( Nongnouch gardens,Cartoon Network waterpark area) on the weekends instead of going into Pattaya City

but still tons of weekenders clogging the roads ( me included obviously 😋)

More than 40 years ago, when I was attending school, those days were always welcomed and appreciated by the naughty, lazy students:

Leave the classroom, not supposed to appear busy, go somewhere where you have never been before. Far away from duty and always someone around to take pictures. 

I'm sure the lazy boys enjoyed the walk on the beach. Rewarded with their pics in the press. Sad day today. Back to the boring routine of dosing behind their desks.

Surprised they could find 16 officers with enough English/Russian/Chinese language skills to be able to converse with the tourists.

“Me help you good” is universally understood.

Did they mention the water quality as part of this safety briefing?

No, but none went into the water from what is reported.
