Police in Thailand

There are two types of Police in Thailand. The normal police and the travel police.

Always contact the travel police if you have any hassles like theft or drugs. You can ring them anywhere in Thailand on 1155.

Travel police can converse in English and are slighter better paid than regular police so not as likely to be bribed. You will see travel police locations in all the main tourist locations.

A word on drugs: never ever accept anything from anyone! Most street cigarette sellers always sell illegal drugs like marijuana and amphetamines as well. If you do purchase a drug from them, you risk the seller turning you in to the police for a quick reward.

If you do get caught with drugs, expect long jail terms and heavy fines.
