Tourist Police Offer Friendly Assistance to Travelers in Seoul

As part of the government’s efforts to provide assistance and improve conveniences for international tourists, tourist police officers have been placed in major areas throughout Seoul. Comprised of 101 officers, the Tourist Police Unit is present in seven major tourist areas including Myeong-dong, Hongdae (Hongik University area), Itaewon Special Tourist Zone, and Insa-dong. The officers’ duties include facilitating fair and friendly exchanges between tourists and merchants and directly addressing any arising questions or concerns. The officers also provide tourist information and interpretation services in English, Japanese, and Chinese. Tourists are encouraged to report any inconveniences they experience during their trip to the officers. Any tourist in need of assistance at any of the patrol areas should look for a tourist police officer in a navy jacket and black beret and ask for help. The officers are on duty every day from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
