16 commanders transferred to ensure smooth peace-keeping operations: acting police chief

Acting national police chief Pol Gen Watcharapol Prasarn Ratchakij said Wednesday that he ordered the transfers of one commissioner and 15 commanders to increase efficiency in police's works to keep peace and order.

Watcharapol gave the order Tuesday, reshuffling several provincial police and district station commanders. One of the transferred was the commissioner of the Provincial Police Bureau 3.

He said the transferred officers had done nothing wrong but they might have problems to control operations in their areas.

"So, they have to step away and we have to find stronger officers to take charge for the time being," Watcharapol said.

"Those who were transferred did not do anything wrong. But there may be some factors that allow new commanders to have more efficiency in keeping peace and order."
