Phuket gets ATV Police Patrols for Beaches.
The ATVs are to be funded by the Phuket Provincial Administrative Organisation – along with 29 million baht for more security cameras around the island and an extra 32 million baht for 80 powerful light stands to illuminate the dark area at beaches and at crash blackspots on Phuket’s roads.
The new ATV and bicycles concept for patrolling the beaches would be launched on November 11, he said.
”Officers in those patrols will become skilled in rescue work and resuscitation too,” he said.
As part of its big spend, the PPAO would add 70 security cameras in Patong, and 19 each in Karon and Phuket City. more at phuketwan.com
