Tourist police breaks the barriers of language and assists to their best.
In Seoul, you may come across differently dressed officers who seem to speak English or some other foreign language. These are the tourist police for people who are visiting or living in Korea. The tourist police was officially launched in Seoul on October 6, 2013. Due to the increasing number of visitors and residents to Korea every year, the government has decided to provide tourists and expats with more convenience. They have been patrolling the streets of Seoul to ensure security and fair services as well as maintaining law and order. When they speak about fair services, they will be working to crack down on overcharging merchants and taxi drivers. These officers will be able to provide you with any other assistance you may have to make your stay a bit more comfortable.
They have stations in Myeong-dong, Itaewon Tourist Special Zone, Naedaemun Market, Insa-dong, Hongdae, Dongdaemun Shopping Complex and Dongdaemun Shopping Town, and Cheonggyecheon Stream/City Hall. The hours of their service are from 9:00 AM ? 11:00 PM 7-days a week. These officers can speak English, Japanese, or Chinese. If you need to inquire or report a problem, please call +82-2-1330 (Korean, English, Japanese, Chinese).
