The chief of Nong Khai police was forced to explain what happened after a video he took himself ended up being seen by the public.

 

Chief Phaisan Leusomboon, head of the force in the north eastern Thai province, was trying to make a radio call at the weekend but could not connect.

 

Concerned by this he went to the radio operations room where he found one of his men so drunk that he could barely stand.

 

The officer was out of uniform too.

 

A breath test was ordered and the officer, who admitted to drinking on duty, was found to have 295 milligrams in his blood.

 

He was stepped down and placed on sentry duties for a month. This was according to procedures, said Phaisan.

 

The chief added that it was not his intention for the video to end up in the public domain, reported Daily News.

 

The video he took was intended to remind all station chiefs in the province to make sure that officers under their command are not drunk on duty.

He got off lightly, should have also sent him to AA, but then again I don't think they have one in Thailand, or if they did, he would probably have to book 12 months in advance.

e was stepped down, and placed on sentry duty for 1 month?????

Is the police chief serious???

Should be sacked immediatey, if a policeman goes on duty drunk, he is a danger not only to his self, but the public he is paid to serve and protect.

Did i really say that??? serve and protect. That statement does not apply to the RTP.

There are plenty of AA meetings all over Thailand.

Everybody, myself included, makes mistakes and we all deserve a second chance. 

Should the officer in question be found to be under the influence of alcohol while on duty ever again, then yes, sack him on the spot.

sure doesnt seem too savvy; did he really expect such a video would make one milli-iota of a difference to station chiefs ? if so, then added to the leak and the 'penalty', this guy is not an effective

Yes,  but not all of us are drinking on duty where we have access to guns ! Sack him for good.

They have police in Nong Khai?  Where exactly would a policeman be placed on sentry duty?

At least he was relatively harmless in the radio shack. except for inconveniencing his boss which is where he made his big mistake. Putting him out on the beat only gives him the opportunity to do a bit of quiet extorting of the punters around the neighbourhood.
