What Ph.D have to do with it ?

Why would a

Painter/house/Decorator want part time work anyway?

I've spoken to the tourist police in different provinces about their foreign volunteers, and also the volunteers. They didn't want to recruit foreigners, they were just following orders from Bangkok. 

The ones in my province can't even speak Thai. If they could, they wouldn't take the job.

A specialist knowledge of drunkenese speak might be handy.

“Definitely, foreign language ability is required in their own language. They need to able communicate in English {as the international language],” Col Anotai explained.

With all those requirements, not over the age of 45 and having just Booted-out the previous batch of, presumably Dedicated, Long Serving  and Qualified VOLUNTEERS,  this fellow has rather high hopes!

There is a lot more behind this than "we" will ever know about through the normal channels and the reason it won't become known is...……..think about the second name of a retired female tennis world champion whose first name is Steffi, for the clue.

Working experience with/understanding drunks would definitely be beneficial.

The lip-reading course for drunkenese is probably the most difficult.

There are plenty of Police in Thailand, they just need to brush-up on their language skills.

Having foreigners as volunteers is a cop-out (sorry for the pun)

So you need to be under 45 "and" have permission to live/Certificate of residence, good luck with that. that pretty much leaves it open to a couple of people already working in Thailand. Seriously, anyone under 45 doesn't have a long stay visa/ certificate of residence, except a couple of teachers or married to Thai maybe. I am sure they will want to teach all day then volunteer at night.

 

2. Qualifications of Applicants

2.4 Male or female age not over 45

2.6 is a person who is permitted to enter and live in the Kingdom properly.
4.2 Resident Certificate of Immigration Bureau

 

Whats more concerning is this one

4.4 In the case of applicants conducting business in the area of Patong

the name of the business establishment


Bar owners etc, policing themselves. Have an issue with a bar owner or manager and he pulls out his police volunteer badge.

"So you need to be under 45 "and" have permission to live/Certificate of residence, good luck with that." - my thoughts exactly.  That narrows the field down to very few.

 

In true Thai style, they are basically getting rid of farang police volunteers, without actually getting rid of them, officially. 

 

I can only see a lot more Consular assistance being requested because there will be no basic advice given to tourists, who come under police notice, by a fellow countryman, with experience of living here and "the system."  

 

When I use the term "come under police notice" I am not really talking about serious crime.  It could be something simple like finding out the hotel of an intoxicated tourist who is asleep on the footpath. 

 

Then, there are the usual problem causing events here such as a tourist who has had a motorbike accident and doesn't understand the "mediation" process, a tourist arguing the bill because drinks have been added, a tourist arguing with a tuk-tuk driver because the driver changed the price on him, the well known scratched jet-ski beach performance  etc etc etc etc.  Many times it's actually the tourist who is the victim here. 

 

Whilst history shows there have been some dodgy farang police volunteers, the tourists will soon be left alone to deal with dodgy and corrupt Thai's, so I can only see the phones of the various Honorary Consuls ringing more, and for even more slightly serious incidents, like an accident with injuries, the Consulate phones.  Trouble is, once that process starts, it's hard for the tourist to "mediate" their way out.
