Massive Police Operation Controls Nightlife Closing Times

In the early hours of Friday morning night-revellers in Pattaya witnessed a major police operation, involving some 100 officers, to control the closing times of entertainment venues throughout the city. Officials said that most venues had complied with the regulatory 3:00 am closing for those within the specified zone, and 2:00 am for those outside.

Pattaya, November 26, 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 3.15am, a special task force of 100 officers, under the supervision of Chonburi Deputy Commissioner Theeraphon Jindaluang, inspected entertainment venues throughout Pattaya City. They were concentrating specifically on closing times together with three measures previously announced by the authorities : 1. No under18 year-olds inside the venues, 2. No drugs and 3. No weapons or other dangerous illegal items in the venues.

The operation comes just one day after a meeting during which Pattaya officials announced an application would be made for a 24 hour entertainment license for specified areas of the city.

The result of the first night’s operation was deemed positive, with most of the night clubs, beer bars, a-gogos, pubs, and discothèques closing on time as agreed, much to the dismay of many of the night-revellers who found themselves roaming the streets after 3:00 am with nowhere to go.

Nearly all of the venues in the Walking Street zone had complied with the regulations. An officer said that a few establishments had been defiant and remained open beyond their 2:00 am or 3:00 am limit. Those responsible for these venues had been taken into custody and now await judicial proceedings.

Over the next few days police will continue to monitor the city’s nightlife to make sure the regulations are observed and perhaps increase the possibility of the city being granted a 24 hour license.
