They are Pol Col Duangchote Suwannacharas, the station superintendent, and Pol Lt Col Thanakorn Ngamyen, a police inspector and acting deputy superintendent for crime suppression.

The duo have been shifted to the operation centre of the Metropolitan Police Division 5 (MPD5) by its commander, Pol Maj Gen Sophon Sarapat.

At least 18 Thong Lor officers have been infected with COVID-19, all of whom were responsible for patrolling public areas.

If true what 'Fascinated' is writing than it looks like it's just a change of the guard at that police station. Now another position buying team with the snouts in the lucrative police station trough. Very sad how since the coup in 2014 nothing of the promised 'reform' even started. Poor Thailand.

Widely known as the most corrupt police station in Bangkok- and that's saying a lot. Nice little earner for the new ones in charge.
