* Sri Lanka police strengthen security in the coastal areas
Sun, Jan 27, 2013, 11:21 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 27, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police have taken measures to increase the presence of police officers in the tourist coastal areas to provide more security to the tourists and to prevent harassment of tourists by touts and beach peddlers.

The police had deployed more English speaking tourist policemen in those areas, mostly in the South, to better communicate with the tourists and provide protection for them, the police said.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police, N.K. Ilangakoon has instructed the police to increase operations by the traffic police to nab offenders round the clock as the most motorists violate traffic rules in the night.

According to the Traffic Police three wheelers and motorcyclists are the worst offenders of traffic laws.

In another measure, the police have decided to increase their presence in school parking areas.

According to the police, plain clothes policemen will patrol the school van parking areas following complaints that women, who drop off their kids to schools, engage in illicit activities with the van drivers in the parked vans until the schools are over.
