Deputy BKK Governor meets Municipal Chiefs on rewards for littering reports

Bangkok officials have handed policy to municipal heads in all 50 districts of the city on the rewarding of citizens who provide information leading to the arrest of litterers.

Deputy Bangkok Governor Pol Lt Gen Amnuay Nimmano has held a meeting with the municipal heads of Bangkok’s 50 districts and announced to them a policy under the City Cleanliness and Orderliness Act that rewards a portion of the fine for littering and other disorderly acts to the good Samaritans who report the act. At the meeting, it was made known that since the practice has been employed, over 400 reports have been filed with 200 investigated and 40 people fined. Most of the reports were on motorcycles riding on sidewalks. The deputy governor affirmed to the local chiefs that citizens seeking a reward must make sure to photograph the license plate of the offender and have proof that a wrongdoing was committed.

The municipal heads were told that inactivity would result in a disciplinary transfer to a public services division where 30 posts have been made vacant.

The deputy governor will next week meet with Metropolitan Police on this matter.
