  • Provide tourist information and interpretation services in English {p/n: Dark Blue Badge}, Chinese {p/n: Yellow Badge}, and Japanese {p/n: Red Badge} 
  • Help deal with and solve inconveniences experienced while traveling in korea
  • protect tourists, and prevent crime at tourist areas
  • stop and investigate illegal activities against tourists

For crime reports, tourists are advised to call 112, and call 1330 for information and interpretation!
Details of locations, and more information are listed below:

Fans has spotted Siwon on the streets wearing the summer tourist police uniform [cr: @special0425].

However, we aren’t sure whether Changmin, Siwon and Donghae have been officially appointed as part of the tourist police for their language skills, or they are just promoting their missions.



Regarding the tourist uniform, it comes in two types: Blue for the winter and White for the summer.

You can also see the badges indicating the languages these police men and women can speak! From the photos above we can see that Changmin’s badge is the red one, and so it is for Japanese tourists~

One interesting fact about the uniforms, especially the winter one, is that they are styled after the globally popular kpop song Gangnam style by Psy! [cr: abc.net via @joeylfy]

Read about it and about the tourist police formation here and here.
