Deputy Commander of the Region 8 Police Lt Gen Chalit Thinthanee and Thalang Police Chief Col Sompong Thiparpakul were both present when the announcement was made at 4pm today, and more than 150 police officers from Thalang, Sakoo and Tha Chatchai police station were in attendance.

Lt Gen Chalit said, “I am pleased to preside over this ceremony and announce a campaign aimed at ridding the island of drugs and crime. Along with local police officers, officials from local administration offices will also be helping out during this campaign.

“It is now close to high season so many people will be visiting the island and there will be many activities lined up for this period so high security is a must.

“We have to be vigilant and provide tourists with maximum security. Every department must sacrifice and fully support this campaign. We must not neglect our responsibilities and must do our best for the safety of the public,” he said.

Col Sompong added, “This is an on going campaign for us to prevent crime and rid the island of criminals so that safety of the people can be assured, especially during high season. This campaign is an order from the National Police.

“This time of the year does not only bring more tourists to Phuket, but also crime, other illegal activities and accidents on Phuket’s road.

“Today we have officers patrolling many areas to show people that we are ready to handle any situation, keep the public safe and keep up the country’s good tourism image,” he said.

I guess it's more like the tail wagging the dog, Thalang residents decide what laws the police should enforce!!  A bit like an article i read where the police had set up a speed camera at an accident black spot but removed it after complaints from the locals! haha

Same same,  Yes, partly a number of RTP force in this fresh campaign are from that police station in Thalang.
They still have to arrest about 60 thai 'culprits' who were fighting around that police station, destroying it partly while governor and high ranking police officers were hiding at upper floor until army came., and burning 9 police cars.

Guess now with this new campaign they will be 'to busy' to do any longer arrest of something what happened last year.

The balance between Thalang police force and the Thalang 'citizens' is very 'fragile'.

Is this the same police that handled the burning down of their own police station and cars. LOL
