Shopping malls have been asked by the police to install more “look-up” high definition surveillance cameras in and around their premises as a precaution against criminal suspects.

Pol Lt-Gen Prawuth Thavornsiri, the spokesman of the Royal National Police Office, said Sunday that most criminal elements often avoided looking up when committing offences in shopping malls to protect themselves from being identified because they knew they were being watched by above-head surveillance cameras.

He suggested shopping malls to install surveillance cameras at eye level so that they could detect the faces of the suspects. He stressed that the cameras should be of higher quality for shaper images.

Pol Lt-Gen Prawuth, also the assistant police chief, presided over the launch of police patrol at tourists destinations in Bangkok on Sunday which include Suan Chatuchak, shopping malls and the Grand Palace.

Regarding the Ratchaprasong bombing incident, he said that the case was progressing well but he could not elaborate on the case.

He also clarified that all the VDO clips or images shown in the social media claiming to be suspected bomber or their conspirators were not posed by the police.
