Vietnamese police officials were in Pattaya last week to study how local cops nab bad guys with an eye toward incorporating Thai tactics into police academy classes.
Pattaya’s police chief, Pol. Col. Supathee Bungkhrong welcomed Pol. Maj. Gen. Pham Ngoc Ha, vice president of the Vietnam People’s Police Academy and a delegation from the Ministry of Defense to the Soi 9 headquarters July 17.
Pol. Maj. Col. Pham Ngoc Ha of the Vietnam People’s Police Academy said he likely will adopt some guidelines used in Pattaya for Vietnamese policing in the future.
The delegation visited Pattaya to study the policing undertaken by the Royal Thai Police. After introductions and an exchange of work experiences between representatives from both countries, the Vietnamese visited each of the departments within the Pattaya Police Station before seeing the firearms display by the special-weapons and tactics team and exchanging souvenirs.
Pham said he was very pleased to visit Pattaya Police Station and praised the proactive crime prevention saying he likely will adopt some guidelines for Vietnamese policing in the future. Besides the objectives of studying and exchanging working experiences with Thai police, the visit was also organized to promote good relations between Thailand and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
