A majority of Bangkokians see the work performance of police officers under current chief Pol Gen Priewpan Damapong as "fairly successful" and they are confident that his replacement will be able to ensure safety in the city, a Bangkok Poll revealed on Thursday.
The pollster surveyed 1,146 people aged above 18 in Bangkok.
The opinion survey found that 68.4 per cent of the respondents thought the police under Pol Gen Priewpan, who retires on Sunday, had achieved some level of success in their work – mostly in crime/drugs suppression, protection of major national institutes and providing good friendly services to people. However, 31.6 per cent said officers did not have an outstanding work performance.
