Police make reporting lost documents easier

PHUKET TOWN: Police here have opened three new booths to make it easier for local people and tourists to report the loss of documents. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the new booths are at the intersection of Phang Nga Rd and Phuket Rd; in front of Suan Luang Park on Chaofa Rd; and at the public housing project on Si Sena Rd in Tambon Rassada. Pol Col Chalit Tinthanee, the superintendent of Phuket Town Police Station, said local people and tourists report the loss of more than 10,000 documents a year in the Muang District alone. In the past, they had to come to the Phuket Town Police Station to report losses, causing unnecessary inconvenience, particularly for foreign tourists. The new booths, he said, should make it more convenient for people to report such losses. Col Chalit noted, however, that locals losing an ID card, a birth certificate, a house registration document or a certificate of death should not go to the new booths but should instead go to the Muang District Office or the Phuket Town Municipality offices.
