Anti-terror training puts the team first
Police must test the limits of their own endurance before they can help their unit, writes Wassayos Ngamkham
This year's advanced anti-terrorism training course, better known by its code name "Naresuan 261," sees a total of 60 police officers attending, double that of past years.
This year is special because the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) has been given a quota of another 30 seats for its personnel, mostly from the Crime Suppression Division's (CSD) commando unit. Seven came from the Marine Police while the other 30 officers came from Border Patrol Police.
The reason is the CSD is to set up a new unit whose main duty is to ensure security for His Majesty the King and members of the royal family as well as other important persons.
