BANGKOK: -- National police chief Chakthip Chaijinda commented yesterday on the cheating uncovered in entrance exams for the Thai police.

 

It has been found that more than 400 individuals cheated in the tests.These were people taking the test who paid bribes for favors as well as people setting the exams who gave out answers, reports Daily News

 

Chakthip said he had received reports from the metropolitan chief of police Sanit Mahathavorn and Region 7 head Suthiphong Wongpin and was satisfied that the cheating was confined to those two sections of the police.

 

Asked if the reports should lead to the whole testing procedure being declared void the chief was noncommittal. He said that all things had to be considered and that a committee had been set up to examine the options in conjunction with the legal and police education departments.

 

Those who had not cheated and had gained fair entrance to the force also needed to be considered in the matter to ensure fairness, he said.

 

He said that were the results not declared void there are reserves to take the place of those who cheated.

 

All miscreants in the matter will be prosecuted, Chakthip reiterated.

Why just pick on police exams when the whole education system is based around cheating and bribing.

"chief was noncommittal"

 

Chief should have thought about what to say before speaking to the press and the Thai people who he serves.  For being noncommittal, he should be fired.  His position was most likely not earned, but was awarded.  Unaccountable as always.

Police Chief unambiguously sends a clear non-committing message to... who actually? The Thai public, who is used to decades of particular police conduct? To the police, who can't read anyway? To the wannabe police who still can read but will lose that skill shortly?

Ah, I know, it's a memo to himself.

I can't see any mention, by the police chief, of one of the ultimate points - punishment of the police who are up to their necks in organizing the cheating.

I assume chief unfamiliar with the phrase "The buck stops here". If this cheating happens on his watch, it is his responsibility. If underlings don't do their jobs, fire them. Get people in there who can do the job. Police can't seem to be able to police the police. If exam is multiple choice (easiest to grade, easiest to cheat on) then change it to essay or produce response (aka write sentence or two to answer) form. Remove names from answer sheets before grading. If they can ask sensible pertinent questions (a big 'if' for sure) then exam would be valid. End of problem
