Police Stations In Chiang Mai
If you get into trouble or need to seek the services of a policeman. Then it's suggested you go to the police station rather than calling one over off the street. The reason being is that police on the beat usually play a different role to what you get at the station. Another thing is corruption. You see when you go to the station a lot more people will know about your situation, it makes it harder to make bribes and so forth.
If you really are at fault an in a situation where you could find yourself in jail, then call a police officer off the street. This way you might be able to get your way out of a situation without it having to go to the station, once your at the station all bets are off pretty much.
There are many reasons why you'd want to contact the police, especially if something has been stolen from you and you need to make an insurance claim. What ever you do though do not make a fraudualent insurance claim to Thai police, they will catch you out and if you do you will be serving time behind bars, Thai police do not like this at all because it looks bad on thailand if you say something has been stolen so only do so if it really is.
I know of one case where someone at my dad's guest house claimed a camera was stolen, he went to the police station and made a claim, the police went back to his room and actually found the camera. He spent the next 6months in Jail!
As a foreigner typically you'll need to seek the services of the tourist police in Chiang mai, they have people their that can speak english, japanese, korean, french, and german who can help you translate whatever problem you've had, typically if a forgeigner get's in trouble here they will contact the Tourist police to deal with it.
