Three police command centres will be set up near the Pitak Siam protest venue to direct law and order procedures, and people under 18 will not be allowed to take part in the anti-government rally, police said on Thursday.
Spokesman Pol Maj Gen Piya Uthayo said the frontline command centres would be at Sanam Suapa ground (next to the Royal Plaza), parliament and Government House. They would be supervised by Metropolitan Police chief Kamronwit Thoopkrachang and 40 other police commissioners selected from across the country.
Each command centre would have 5-6 sub-operations units to screen people entering the protest venue, to ensure they do not carry weapons or prohibited substances. Pitak Siam security guards would help police at each checkpoint.
