New Phuket Police chief honors the Heroines

PHUKET: Phuket’s incoming Phuket Provincial Police Commander, Maj Gen Chote Chawanwiwat, stopped off at the Heroines Monument last night to pay homage to the island’s guardian spirits.

Gen Chote arrives in Phuket after serving as the Commander of the Narathiwat Provincial Police in Thailand’s troubled Deep South.

He will be installed as Phuket’s top-ranking police officer tomorrow, replacing Maj Gen Chonasit Wattanavrangkul, who served as Phuket’s top cop for only eight months.

Gen Chonasit has been transferred to take up the position of Commissioner of Inspection Division 9, Office of the Inspector General, in Bangkok.
