The transfer orders were made on Mar 12, but the information was withheld from the press until last Sunday (Mar 18).

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.

How can it be that must of the western world let government officials gets fired and losing pension, for wrong doing (corruption). But in Thailand they "just" get transferred.
Where is the penalty ? they still going to make there extra "house income) ?

This annual shuffling of police brass must be exciting for them...when they find out how lucrative their next assignment will be. They wait with anticipation, wondering if they have paid enough to finally land that brown envelope heaven, or whether they have to do another term settling for petty bribes for helmet and license violations, hoping for that terrible accident that they can negotiate.

Great words from the Governor. The Police here have a shocking reputation for corruption which will take a long time to change. It’s never too late and you have to start somewhere. Let’s hope his words bring change. Start with one thing and improve from there, even traffic is a good place, enforce helmet laws for example don’t just stand and blow whistles endlessly at traffic jams!

Wow, Chalong Police station gets now 2 new high ranking investigators!
Can we now expect that the 'Free State Patak Road bar Scene' has to confirm with the thai law closing time of 01:00 AM, or will it continue to be open as the bars feel to be open?
New Investigators, old wine in new bags with new side pockets?
One thing is for sure, all these roulating transfers give them a fair share...
