PHUKET: Police in Phuket have launched a new campaign in the hope of stemming rising crime rates brought on by the current economic crisis.

 

The campaign was announced by Region 8 Police Deputy Commander Maj Gen Teeraphol Thipjaroen at a mass assembly of law-enforcement officers at Phuket City Police Station yesterday afternoon (Aug 6).

 

Present at the assembly to receive their mandate for the campaign were 319 law-enforcement personnel from Region 8 Police, Phuket Provincial Police, Marine Police, Tourist Police, Phuket Immigration, Highway Police and personnel from the Royal Thai Army 41st Military Circle, which has soldiers based in Phuket, and the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command, based at Cape Panwa.

Brilliant…the illustrious Major General is a true ‘out-of-the-box’ master of innovation.

 

He plans to put all the island’s criminals to work selling flowers (see photo). This will give them a profitable livelihood, a sense of personal satisfaction, a pleasant smell, and a reason to turn away from a sad and tragic life of crime.

 

All forms of crime in Phuket will soon be completely eliminated.

Give Phuket and Thailand his tourism business back. And don't forget to charge Xi for the damage he caused.

But i thought that Phuket did not want the foreigners??..??..

Does that mean that the locals have scrapped all their slingshots and slander?

That is a claim made sometimes, without proof.

 

btw, nowhere in the op does it say crime is higher now, seems to be more pre-emptive.

It`s always been a racket during the daytime at the intersection at the end of Bangla road.
