“Our force still doesn’t cover the whole country, but effective security measures have been taken in areas where most tourists visit. The Tourist Police Department are now working together with local police forces in implementing these measures. As our force is still young, we have requirements to get better in our services. So we’re trying hard to improve,” said Police Colonel Myo Min Oo, from the Tourist Police Department.
Local police departments across the country are also leading activities, such as engaging in public talks to ensure tourist security.
“Many tourists visit our area. So our police force patrols the area every day. We have also taken necessary preventive measures in the area. A day before, we had persuaded a foreign couple to get to a nearby hotel as they said they would stay by the roadside for the night.
We give help as much as we can,” said a senior police officer from Nyaung Shwe Township Police Department in Shan State.
