One of Thailand’s top policemen, Pol Gen Korkiet Wongworachat, who is Criminal Suppression Consultant to the police force, was in Phuket last night to check on security arrangements in advance of the Songkran Festival.
He inspected a parade at Phuket City Police Station of more than 100 officers from a variety of units including tourist police, immigration police and crime suppression police, who then left in their vehicles to spread out across the island looking for guns, drugs and other crimes, or to control traffic.
The general was impressed. He told media after the parade dispersed, “I believe that Phuket has good security for the Songkran holiday in line with Royal Thai Police policy to suppress crime and reduce accidents.”
Pol Col Weerawat Chanvijit, Chief Superintendent of Phuket City Police Station said, “I am serious about battling crime to increase people’s security during the long Songkram holiday.
“During the holiday, some people travel back to their home provinces. Others party in Phuket. So driving vehicles is a worry, too.”
