The Royal Thai Police say that since last January, 131 police officers have been disciplined for misconduct, 38 officers have been removed from service, and 7 officers have been fired.

The RTP’s announcement follows PM Prayut Chan-o-cha’s meeting with the police bureau, yesterday. The meeting was intended to discuss the most recent cases of police misconduct. The Nation Thailand says at the meeting the PM demanded immediate and severe action be taken against officers who ard found guilty of misconduct. For September, 28 officers have been disciplined, 23 have been fired and 5 officers have been removed from service.

The RTP spokesperson, Maj-General Yingyot Thepjamnong, says the disciplinary action against police proves that the commission is taking misconduct among officers seriously. Yingyot adds that if officers’ misconduct pertains to criminal cases, they will be punished through the judicial process.

Earlier this month, Bangkok police said the video of a police officer hitting a 14 year old with his car did not represent a hit and run.
