245 police officers have been fired for misconduct this year





The Royal Thai Police (RTP) has fired 245 police officers for misconduct since January, while 53 were discharged and 44 were suspended from services, RTP spokesman Pol Maj-General Yingyos Thepjamnong told the press after a meeting at the police headquarters in Bangkok on Thursday.


The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha.


Yingyos said the meeting discussed general issues related to police work as well as statistics on punishment of police officers who have been found guilty of misconduct.


“In October, 23 police officers were punished, 15 were fired, four were discharged while four were suspended,” he said.


“Statistics from January until now indicates that so far 342 police officers have been punished for misconduct, 245 were fired, 53 were discharged and 44 were suspended.


“The prime minister also discussed the welfare and benefits for police officers and law enforcement during the political protests,” added Yingyos. “However, the appointment of senior officers at deputy commander and inspector levels for this year was not discussed at the meeting.”

So do they count them as fired if they resigned in-lieu of termination in order to keep their pensions like the police in the US are given a choice of in some cases.

They had to fire more than usual as there are no desks left in the department of inactive posts.😉

Think inactive post is a euphemism,
