Rival Phuket teens to be called in for ‘treatment camp’

PHUKET: Police in Patong are to call in 30-40 members of teenage gangs from the area to take part in a “treatment camp” which is part of a project aimed at reducing conflicts among teenagers from the island’s entertainment hub.

The project, titled “Prasand Jai” or “Heart Linking”, will begin next month using a budget which has yet to be set.

Patong police chief Col Chaiwat Uikum told The Phuket News yesterday (July 25) that following a meeting of Patong police at the Blue Ocean Resort last Friday (July 22) it was agreed that the teenagers would be called in to take part in the camp because of the constant fighting among rival teen gangs.

“This project is aimed at reconciling these teens so they can unite together in the Patong community.

“The headmen from seven local communities will also be invited to take part in the camp together with officers from Patong police Station,” he said.

“I expect 30 – 40 teenagers to take part in the camp which will last for two days,” Col Chaiwat said.

“In addition, we also have another project which is related to tourist security called “Pineapple Eyes” which will involve the Patong community. However, details about the project and its budget will not be revealed until a later date,” he added.

Meanwhile, it was revealed last week that the navy has rolled out a training model in which primary and high school students are required to attend army camps to address violence between feuding schools.

Under the so-called Lai Plang (camouflage) model targeting mainly boys, students who graduate from primary school and are moving to Mathayom 1, and those who completed Mathayom 3 and are moving on to Mathayom 4, will be required to attend an army camp lasting between seven to 14 days.

The 'treatment camp' training for sure will be good, at least, for the Patong police officers.
But just 2 days is a bit short, make it 7 days.
After that give them a new insignia for on their uniform.
