BANGKOK:-- The tourist police in Thailand have announced they are to increase in number by 825.

 

The current number of 900 officers nationwide is seen as much too few as some 15 million visitors pour into the kingdom annually, reported Thairath.

 

Chief Surachet Hakpan said that officers would be chosen based on knowledge of police procedures in general, language ability and compatibility with tourists.

 

He felt sure that the increased force would help to add efficiency to the service and lower the crime rate. He said that by creating increased confidence among tourists the country would get more return visitors and more money would flow into the economy.

 

Officers have been chosen on the ability to speak Chinese, English and French in particular and many have already stepped up for the selection process, he said.

How will more tourist police decrease crime rates? I thought their main function was to assist foreigners who have had crimes committed against them i.e. AFTER the fact. The RTP should be preventing the crimes from happening in the first place. :coffee1:

Apparently there has been some hold up on the delivery of the time machines......but they should all be in place next month, when the police can then stop the crime before it happens in  the first place...........:coffee1:

Ummm, do you know how effective police forces work? They patrol, they're visible, they enforce rules and regulations. These actions desuade people from committing crimes...duh. Do you think you're more likely to get attacked on a corner standing next to 2 policemen or one without?:coffee1:

We don't need more police. We need more police enforcing rules such as traffic. :thumbsup:

Well, one photo shows his friendly face and the other a more serious business like face, what great credentials he has, he will make Chief of Police one day
