Pattaya police and community leaders strategized at the fourth Soi Kophai Community news table how they can better cooperate to stem the flow of drugs.
The panel discussion and brainstorming session was aimed at documenting drug problems and developing solutions.
Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawad and Banglamung Deputy District Chief Paradorn Chainapaporn hosted the roundtable with Soi Kophai President Wirat Joyjinda, city and community leaders, representatives from the Pattaya Police Station, and community organizations Aug. 4.
Panelists said the drug situation in Pattaya remains serious, aided by modern technologies that make drugs easier to buy and sell. Police, city and community groups need to use the same technology to stay ahead of problems.
By working together and sharing information, it will make authorities more efficient and responsive, participants agreed.
