Foreign Police Assistants Pattaya


FPV’s role is to assist the Royal Thai Police - in whatever way asked by them - in their interaction with foreign residents or visitors who may need police assistance while in Pattaya. FPV acting as a bridge between different language, laws and customs that may apply.

The Foreign Police Volunteers (FPV) service was established in 2003 by the then Police Commissioner for the Cholburi Region via a request for suitable foreigners to assist in dealing with foreign residents or visitors.

From just a handful of volunteers, the project has grown to a team of around 75 uniformed volunteer officers. Now at most Pattaya area main police stations you will find a help desk manned by FPV who offer advice or assistance to foreigners in their dealing with a police matter or problem.
