Pattaya Police Station is deploying a drone to ensure security for tourists on its famed Walking Street.
Pattaya police chief Pol Colonel Apichai Krobphet launched the drone unit on Friday evening on South Pattaya beach.
Undercover police and interpreters were also deployed on Walking Street to be able to offer timely help to foreign tourists.
He said power and communications cables as well as advertising signs on Walking Street were a major obstacle for the drone operation hence police would seek help from Pattaya City to rearrange the cables and signs.
He said the operation is part of its efforts to modernise Pattaya Police Station in accordance with the government’s Thailand 4.0 policy.
