Police learn how to investigate, in Phuket

PHUKET: Eighty police investigators from Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi – and elsewhere throughout Southern Thailand – yesterday (Nov 20) began a month-long course to learn how to become better investigators and how to deal with foreigners in tourism provinces.

The training, called the “Detective Team training in tourism zone”, is being conducted at the Region 8 Police headquarters based in Mai Khao at the northern end of Phuket.

The 80 investigators hail from Phuket as well as Chumphon, Ranong, Surat Thani, Nakon Sri Thammarat, Krabi and Phang Nga, explained Provincial Police Region 8 Acting Commissioner Pol Lt Gen Sorasak Yenprem.

“The training is being held to develop the skills and abilities of all investigators. They have to be responsible and serve tourists and foreigner investors. It is very important to provide this support to local investigators so they discover the facts and gather evidence in conducting investigations,” Gen Sorasak said.


“It helps them to work faster and helps improves their problem-solving skills,” he added.

In addition to learning investigation skills, including how to gather evidence and question witnesses, the investigators will also undergo shooting practices and receive marital arts training, Gen Sorasak said.

it is quite simple.It is allowed to criticize Thailand and Thai people,justified or not but don't criticize the "holy one"commentator,as he runs the show here.

The press may be free, which is why such endless childish drivel is allowed to be published particularly on PN.

I not agree with a reader's comment that PN edit/remove comments, implying unfairness.
We have to be fair and realize that now it are not easy years for the free press.
It is up to PN to deal with publishing restrictions.
We, readers who comment, have to respect that.

@ematt- some comments are edited or removed, one 'commentator' is allowed to post endless drivel. Definitely selective editing going on. I had a post in another thread removed which was not inflammatory in any way shape or form.

The writer, of this comment, "Endless negativity in the comments here. The subject of the story doesn't even matter - the trash talk is always the same. Give us a break..." didn't actual say if they believed ther would be a change, only sort to criticize,  so writer what do you believe.

It shouldn't take that long to learn how to rewind and play CCTV footage (and maybe erase certain portions), and to learn how to isolate all parties in a crime or accident to determine who has the most cash to extort, and to learn advanced techniques to make yourself look occupied while you're actually doing nothing. Maybe they can even learn how to control a crime scene!...oh wait...forge...

Endless negativity in the comments here. The subject of the story doesn't even matter - the trash talk is always the same. Give us a break...

But they still will not investigate unless you pay them.

Is this just another attempt of RTP to deviate public attention away from all the Phuket RTP corruption matters?

May I laugh to read about Detective Team training in tourist zones?
Zones with protection of police ( protection money) were bars, clubs, etc are open as long they feel to be open?
Are these new detectives going to stop that? On Phuket?
Who believes that? Give me a break.
