The “Public Work For Society” project sees inmates who have exhibited good behaviour while in prison selected to carry out certain tasks within the local community.

Today, Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew visited the site of the old fresh market at Don Chom Thao Road Soi 2 on Thepkrasattri Rd where inmates were helping clear and dredge drainage ditches which had become blocked and compromised after the recent heavy rainfall.

Governor Narong was joined by Phuket Provincial Chief Administrative Officer (Palad) Somprat Prabsongkram, and both commended the inmates work while providing them with refreshments as they worked.

Accompanying and overseeing the inmates were Krisana Thipayachon, the Chanthaburi Provincial Prison Director who is current serving as Acting Director of Phuket Provincial Prison, along with Thepkrasattri Mayor Siricharat Trairat and Thepkrasattri Moo 5 Village Headman (Phu Yai Baan) Wichai Kraithep.

The project is a collaboration between Phuket Prisons and Thepkrasattri Municipality to provide prisoners displaying good behaviour the chance to contribute positively to the local community.

In exchange for one day’s monitored work in the local community the prisoners are afforded one day’s reduction from their overall sentence.

It is also hoped the project can help start assimilating reformed inmates into society again by carrying out manual work that benefits the local community.

This used to be a regular occurrence until a few years back. Often see them in gangs on Nanai and cleaning the drains. Its a great idea and there never any escapes IIRC.
