PHUKET: Police in Kathu are boosting their presence on the streets of Patong for Phuket’s tourism high season.

At a meeting with his top officers earlier this week, Kathu Police Superintendent Arayapan Pukbuakhao called for his officers to boost security, in terms of crime suppression and safety, and to work towards reducing the number of accidents involving tourists during the coming months.

The result is more checkpoints and more officers on the street, with an extra presence after the bars close.

To make the extra security possible, officers will be working extra shifts and some will be pulled from desk jobs.
