National Police Chief, Police General Chakthip Chaijinda has insisted that police reforms are line with public demands.

Speaking during a weekly program ‘Thailand Moves Forward’, Pol Gen Chakthip revealed that he tasked Deputy Police Chief Pol Gen Pongsapat Pongcharoen with mobilizing the police reforms. He added that people will see results once the reforms are implemented.

According to the Deputy Police Chief, the police reforms, which are public-oriented and focused on ensuring justice, will be carried out taking a top-down approach in three different stages.

Urgent reforms will be completed in one year while those requiring more time are expected to be achieved in between five and twenty years. The implementation process will be overseen by ten groups of police officers who are knowledgeable about the reforms.

To provide prompt police services, all 514 police stations in the country will have police inquiry officers working around the clock and a team of forensic experts on standby to collect evidence in cases where a crime is reported.
