New bikes for police

PHUKET TOWN: Police in Phuket this week took delivery of 73 motorbikes for use in patrol duty, as part of a nationwide project by the Royal Thai Police to upgrade police patrol transport. At a ceremony on Thursday at Phuket Town Police Station, the commander of the Phuket Provincial Police, Pol Maj Gen Kongpol Suwannaraks, handed over 14 motorbikes to Phuket Town, seven to Thalang police station, 13 to Kathu, 12 to Chalong, eight to Tha Chat Chai, eight to Cherng Talay, five to Thung Thong and six to Kamala. “This project is supported by the Royal Thai Police,” Gen Kongpol told the assembled officers. “All other provinces have also received new bikes. I think that the police will be more effective in preventing [trouble] and looking after people’s security now that they have better equipment.”
