About 50 police officers attached to the 8th division of Metropolitan Police Bureau were caught by a surprise when they were unexpectedly told that they would have their urines tested.
The meeting was chaired by Pol Maj-Gen Samrith Tongtao, commander of the 8th division of the MPB. As he was addressing his men, a group of policemen in charge of urine testings marched into the meeting room with one carrying a cardboard box containing small plastic bottles to contain urine samples.
Then the attending police officers were told by Pol Maj-Gen Samrith that they would have their urines tested to find out any of them were tested positive with illicit drug use or not. The tests were however negative.
He then told his men that the tests were not intended to find fault with any of them, but it was the policy initiated by Pol Lt-Gen Sanit Mahathavorn, the MPB commissioner, after several policemen were caught to be implicated in illegal drug trade.
According to Pol Lt-Gen Sanit, policemen themselves must be the role model to stay clear of drugs before they are out to crack down on drug abusers or traffickers.
