He said that if young people engage in such activities it could lead to further societal problems such as unwanted or teenage pregnancy.

Police will be on the lookout for teenagers meeting at apartments, motels, daily rooms and parks.

Dr. Sathien also called for cooperation from business operators to help monitor people who may use their service in a bid to prevent any possible incidents.

Officers will also be ensuring that COVID-19 preventative measures are being followed throughout the province.

This will help boost confidence among locals and tourists, Dr. Sathien said.
