New “Happy Zones” boosted by extra cops and cameras

Pattaya’s first “happy zone” will replace the existing “safety zone” on Walking Street and feature more police officers and security cameras.

Police chief Pol. Col. Apichai Kroppech and Banglamung District Chief Naris Niramaiwong met with city Pattaya officials, soldiers, foreign and Thai police volunteers, and Tourist and Immigration Division police March 7 to outline the specifics of the vague happy zones announced Feb. 21.

Chonburi Police commander Pol. Maj. Gen. Somprasong Yentuam last month announced plans for 35 rebranded safety zones with the only apparent difference between the joyful new areas and the much-maligned safety zones designated before being the name.

However, the first happy area, which will cover Walking Street, does seem to have given a bit more effort, with police planning to split the nightlife strip into four zones each manned by a team of police and volunteers from 8 p.m. through 6 a.m.

The cover area extends from the South Road mouth of Walking Street past Marina Plaza onto Thappraya Road.

In addition, the entire Walking Street district will eventually get an additional 130 closed-circuit television cameras.

    Happy zone for unhappy future foreign victims and happy Keystone Cops and Thai Criminals in LOS which is the land of slime,

    • soidog

      With the Thai predilection for hyperbole and lack of originality after ‘safe’and ‘happy’ zones comes ‘super safe happy’ .

  • Ken Anderson

    Only the Keystone Cops would work like this. Set up ”happy zones” where they are increasing ‘security’ and tell everyone where it is going to take place. Anyone on Second road had better look out, all the thieving scamming scum will now be heading up there. Is the rest of Pattaya going to become a ‘sad zone’?
    Welcome to the Land Of Scumbags.

          The only thing Thais are inventive at is new scams.

    • Darius

      Please show me your facts and figures for homophobic attacks in Pattaya most attacks are carried out by ladyboys on men once again your statements do not ring true

  • Leburn

    Security zones, happy zones…Thailand is not a dangerous country, but stay inside the zones. It is much safer.

    • Davy Vic Young

      Thailand is not a dangerous country!!!! What have you been smoking?

      • amazingthailand

        He was smoked by the ricefarmersdaughter

    • soidog

      Try crossing the road or complaining that your bin is stuffed

    • Darius

      With all those cameras you are bound to be spotted sneaking off with your ladyboy

  • Deadhorse.

    Was all for the clubs having an extra camera on the door, strictly for keeping people safe but 130 seems a lot. There will need to be a lot of staff to man this lot. How long before the cameras cease to work or work selectively if there is any complaint against the police?.

  • never mind extra cops and cameras, all they gotta do is boot out the thai men in frocks! we’ll all be happy

  • taff

    Do you think ‘Sexy Soi Six’ would get into your happy zone.

    • Jack La Motta

      He should be barred from the Kingdom or at least only allowed in soi 6 or Boyzone

    • soidog

      Soi Six just seems very fake and very dangerous to me.The greed,desperation
      and threat of violence just crackles down there.

  • amazingthailand
