Sanya established a special police force targeting irregularities in the tourism industry in October 2015.
The tourism police unit, the first of its kind in the country, is in charge of tourists¡¯ security and safety. Tourism police officers have responsibility for security and maintaining order in the tourism sector in Sanya.
Tourists visiting Sanya can ask the police for help if they have been the victims of fraud, have discovered their guide is unlicensed, have been offered tickets to tourist attractions at black market prices, or report other tourism-related crimes.
The team is in charge of supervision and inspection of security at tourist attractions, as well as providing suggestions for improvements.
The tourism police unit is also expected to help to establish a mechanism for institutions and businesses to work together in developing Sanya¡¯s tourist industry.
The police team demonstrates the Sanya government¡¯s determination to build the city into an international tourism destination city.
It will help the city further improve tourism while benefiting tourists and setting an example for other tourist destinations.
