Col Peerayut Karajedi, Deputy commander of the Phuket Provincial police led the Phuket police chiefs to the protocol meeting with the Governor at which he clarified policies to help maintain the security of people and tourists alike.
“The policy of Phuket police is to help maintain security for people and tourists. The policy is to care, to maintain safety in the lives and property of the people and tourists,” said Gov Norraphat.
“In addition, traffic is another problem that Phuket has,” Gov Norraphat said, requesting help from the police chiefs to resolve traffic problems at various locations with ongoing issues.
“Please also emphasise on the care of your subordinates in providing services to people who come to the government to complain or ask for help, to impress the people who come to use the service,” he added.
