Cambodia Emergency

Overview

In Cambodia, police are some of the lowest paid workers in the country, making so little that it’s impossible to support a family on salary alone. Therefore, they supplement their income by requiring fees for services rendered. What this means is that if you are the victim of a crime, you should expect to pay a small bribe to the police in order to report your crime and get a police report written. (If you have travel insurance, you’ll need a police report to file a claim.) When dealing with the police, remain calm and collected. Start your offer at $5. Depending on the value of the items you’ve lost and how hysterical you act, you can end up paying substantially more, though most expats report paying $20 or less.

In most of Cambodia the police speak very little English, so it’s best to bring a translator with you, be it a friend, hotel employee, or tuk tuk driver. If it’s either of the latter, expect to tip them, too. In Siem Reap there are active tourist police who are supposed to speak English (T: 012 402 424; 012 969 991; 012 838 768), while in Phnom Penh the so-called tourist police speak little to no English (T: 023 726 158; 097 778 0002).
