The police reform committee is considering creating a website to let people have a say on how to improve the country’s police force. 

“We may set up a subcommittee on opinion-gathering and open a website to make it easier for people to have their voice heard,” committee’s chairman General Boonsrang Niumpradit said on Tuesday.

Boonsrang, who was installed to the head the committee by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, expressed confidence that he was up to the mission.

“I can study the matter, although I don’t know all the details from the very beginning,” he said.

Boonsrang has no direct background in the police force as he is a former supreme commander of the Royal Thai Armed Forces.

“On my committee are quality members from various backgrounds – civilian, police, and military,” he said. His 36-member committee will convene its first meeting today,during which, four subcommittees will be established.

Boonsrang refused to confirm whether members of the general public will be recruited into the sub-committees.

He said that people could always express their opinions through social media and methods.

Yesterday, he accepted a book on a police reform road map from Somsri Harn-anantasuk, who represents the people’s network on police reform.

Boonsrang said his committee will meet twice a week until solid progress has been made. “Then, we may meet just once a week,” he said.

Boonsrang said his committee would focus on completing its mission within the nine-month timeframe.

“Our mission will be useful to people and the National Police Office, including its junior policemen,” he said.
