Security systems inspected in risky areas ahead of national events


BANGKOK – The Ministry of Defense and related agencies have conducted an inspection of security systems in downtown Bangkok in preparation for the upcoming BIKE FOR DAD activity and New Year celebrations.

The Defense Ministry’s Chief of Staff is working with officials from other security units to check on the condition of CCTV cameras and street lamps around Bangkok. The objective is to ensure that all devices are functioning properly in order to prop up people’s confidence in their own safety prior to the many national functions coming up later this year, including the BIKE FOR DAD cycling event and New Year festivities.

The inspection today was performed at Ratchaprasong intersection, from the Erawan Shrine to Big C Department Store on Ratchadamri Road. The operation had earlier taken place in 10 other locations of the capital which are considered prone to untoward incidents
