Last Thursday, Col Sermpan met bar and club owners in Soi Bangla to discuss about how to prevent criminal activities in Patong, especially along the notorious lane.
He said the owners have a responsibility to help police watch out for any suspect criminals, in order to provide a safer atmosphere for the many tourists that visit the area.
“Moreover, street vendors are not allowed in Soi Bangla.” added Col Sermpan.
Col Sermpan replaced Col Arayapan Pukbuakao in April, who was promoted and transferred to Surat Thani province.
