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.
