Gen Wuthi pledged his assurance at a meeting at Phuket Provincial Police headquarters in Phuket Town this morning, when many of the consuls aired their grievances about being poorly informed of police action in investigating the bombings.

At the high-powered meeting were Central Investigation Bureau Deputy Commissioner Maj Gen Adis Ngamchitsuksri, Region 8 Police Deputy Commander Maj Gen Chalit Thinthani and Phuket Provincial Police Commander Maj Gen Teerapol Thipjaroen.

Also present was Phuket Vice Governor Chokdee Amornwat, the superintendents of all police stations across Phuket and a host of other law-enforcement officials.

Maj Gen Teerapol recognised that many people, especially tourists and other visitors, were concerned for their safety after the explosions in Patong last Friday. (See story here.)

“The Provincial Police has drawn up a four-pronged strategy to improve security here. First, officers will investigate all reports of foreigners becoming victims of crime and ensure that all relevant agencies know of these incidents so better crime-prevention strategies can be developed.

“Second, we will collect as much information about tourists and the areas where they gather in large numbers so we can boost police security in those areas,” Gen Teerapol explained.

“Third, police will use public relations, including local press and foreign volunteers from each country, to inform tourists of incidents and current issues, and fourth, we will use technology to improve security, such as set up CCTV and creating lists of names of known suspects and suspicious items found.

“All this will help provide maximum security for tourists, both Thai and foreign, and prevent such incidents from happening again,” he said.

“And right now, Phuket is back to normal,” Gen Teerapol said

Yes Rorii, That was a mis-spelling of me. Sorry.
Actually on 7-8-9-10 August I wrote it correct ( caning).
That time Joe12 wrote ..canning..

Kurt, I think pedantic swerv is harping on about the miss-spelling of "caning," you used "canning" although most of us realize English isn't you first language, pedantic irritants(swerv), can not help but whinge, as they have nothing intelligent to add, as swerv is Joe12's supporter, I think they are one of the same person.

Thai swerve still not understand that a fish bowl is a round aquarium for fishes.
2nd time now I tell him that it has nothing to do with canned food.
I never wrote about 'canned'.

Kurt: I have no problem with reading. This is your previous comment: Already told the fish bowl Joe12 several times that I NOT specific advocate canning of juveniles.
So once again Tuna is canned, not juveniles.

Kurt | 26 August 2016 - 14:37:25

Yes,  Joe12:  In this case if you cane these youngsters in order to prevent them to do more killing attempts  on Phuket,..and to be a example to other wrong thinking people who not yet killed others, yes, that would be a good thing.

Of course, thai youngsters who kill are mentally disordered and should be locked up for the rest of their life, in order to protect the society.

The( financial)fine system in Thailand is pre historical.

Guess Joe12 didn't read other readers comments, as he does not comment on them.   :)

Joe12 | 26 August 2016 - 10:33:48

Kurt...it's only you who would not understand or comprehend swerve's comments...lol. It's you with the problem of not being able to read.

The Phuket News

Kurt | 25 August 2016 - 22:41:48

swerv: Never spoken about canned food items., just about a fish bowl in which living creatures swim in circles.
Problems with correct reading?

Joe12 | 25 August 2016 - 22:02:42

Kurt...oh really?.. this is your quote:

"6 Strokes with the cane, and send them home. A whole village will get clear of 'punk crimes'.( including shoot to kill). That works in Singapore, give it a try in Thailand. Start on Phuket." Yep...real respectful.

This is your best one though, "I comment in a 'positive' manner on negative thai happenings...and respectful." Seems like you just shot yourself in the foot?


Like we keep telling you, even you don't know what you say.

I recently made a positive comment on a negative happening. I wish I too had the program that would make ATM's spew money out. Talk about nouveau riche !!
