People in Thailand will soon see traffic police officers in new uniforms. The Royal Thai Police has allocated a budget for the updated field uniforms, which are aimed at improving traffic police officers’ agility and safety. The new uniforms will be worn from September 15.



Royal Thai Police Commissioner Damrongsak Kittipraphat earlier appointed a working committee for adjusting the uniform of traffic police officers, with input having been gathered from police officers nationwide. The Royal Thai Police reached a conclusion to assign traffic police officers the same type of uniform used by crime prevention and suppression officers. However, the backside of the new uniform has a white logo strip with the text “Traffic Police” and a fluorescent armband. The new uniform can also be used by the same police officer if he or she switches to work in crime prevention and suppression.



According to Pol. Gen. Damrongsak, traffic police officers play the vital role of facilitating traffic, helping people on the roads, and carrying out measures to reduce or prevent road accidents. The officers also function in other tasks as assigned.

According to the police chief, using the same uniform type as crime prevention and suppression officers will make the work of traffic police officers safer and more effective while giving the wearer greater agility. He noted the issuance of the new uniform will be the first time traffic police officers are provided with a field uniform, and this would boost their morale. (NNT)
