The Tourist Police Division have announced an additional 825 officers will be recruited to bolster numbers and ease the burden on current team as tourist numbers in Thailand swell.

Tourist Police Commander Surechet Hakpan said the 900 officers currently under his command will almost double in size in the months ahead and talks with the Tourist Authority of Thailand and other government agencies related to the tourism sector had taken place in a bid find ways of boosting confidence and cutting crimes against visitors to Thailand.

One of the suggestions approved was increasing the number of officers in the Tourist Police Division as visitor numbers to the Kingdom are set to bypass 26 million this year.

Commander Surechet stated new recruits will be selected based on language ability and compatibility with foreigners.
