Police spread danger zone signs at the Pangandaran Beach tourist attraction

Pangandaran (Reportase One) – The Air and Air Police Unit (Satpolairud) has deployed dozens of coastal area hazard zone signs to warn tourists not to become victims of sea accidents while traveling in all coastal tourist attractions, Pangandaran Regency, West Java.

“All 50 have been distributed (already installed) from Karapyak Beach to Madasari Beach,” said Head of Satpolairud Pangandaran Police AKP Sugianto when contacted by cell phone, Sunday.

He said all the signs had been installed at a number of beach tourism points in Pangandaran Regency which were considered a danger zone for swimming activities for tourists.

The priority beach for officers’ supervision, he said, is one of them at Post 5 on the West Coast of Pangandaran because at that location there is a potential danger for tourists who can be pulled into the middle of the ocean.

“At that location there is a strong current loop, which can pull swimmers far to the center, so it can endanger the safety of visitors,” he said.
