Lt Gen Sorasak said, “Dec 25 is Christmas Day and Dec 30- Jan 2 are New Year holidays. Many people are travelling during these long holidays. We are confident that we can help traffic management and provide assistance and safety to travellers during the festival break and carry out an anti-crime blitz.

“We are concerned for residents and tourists so we will deploy as many officers as possible to be on watch and on crime and traffic incidents to provide maximum safety during this period,” Lt Gen Sorasak added.
