Traffic police face transfer if they don't know the law

Caption: Fail the exams and face transfer

 

Police in Bangkok - and principally those involved in traffic duties - will be tested for their knowledge of the law in early September. 

 

If they fail to get 80% on the test - and fail a retake too - they will be transferred to something else. 

 

Pol Maj-Gen Sukhun Phromayon said that 100 questions on the law are being chosen out of 1,000 possibilities for the test. 

 

Officers from the rank of Lt-Col down to police lance corporals will be tested. That is ten police ranks.

 

Lt-Col is the rank normally associated with deputy station chiefs. 

 

In total 3,000 officers will sit the one and a half hour duration exams. If they don't get 80% they will have to resit.

 

If they fail again they face being transferred.

80%, should be 100%.

 

I wonder what legal / traffic law training / lessons they have when they enter the force?

Tourist Police perhaps where their previous training, although proven worthless, can be used to advantage in controlling and keeping a watchful eye on tourists and farang expats in general.

They can still be in positions to make valuable contributions to the Police Retirement Fund.

For the tourist police they will have to have some knowledge of English and it wouldn't be a punishment as the pay is higher.
