Before traveling to Koh Phangan, it is wise to have a little knowledge about the Koh Phangan police station and the way it operates around the island. Some knowledge of the Koh Phangan police station may make your visit to the island a bit safer. The Koh Phangan main police station is located near Haad Rin Beach, which is the popular location of the Full Moon Party that attracts over 30,000 people a month.

The station is near the taxi station and is operated by the Thong Sala district police. Their influence can be felt and they can be on hand when the wild parties have trouble, as they often do. The Full Moon Party, held every full moon, is also attended by a wealth of undercover policemen watching for illegal activities, especially in the realm of drugs.

The Koh Phangan police station is also the place where local issues dealing with visas, passports and the like are taken care of. This local Koh Phangan police station stays busy most times of the year but especially so during the summer months when most tourists flock to the island.

The Haad Rin Beach police station is not the only police station in Koh Phangan. There is also a tourist police station in the middle of the city, which works more like a visitor center for needy out of town tourists then anything else. This Koh Phangan police station is also staffed by local police officers, but their work in the local drug scene and theft is not as important as it is in the other offices.

The police stations of Koh Phangan are active on the island and help make the area a safe place for family vacations and tropical resorts.
