YALA, Oct 16 -- Thailand's assistant national police chief Pol Lt-Gen Charamporn Suramanee led two senior officials from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) to observe forensic operations by the Thai police in this country’s southernmost provinces.

Gen Charamporn led Paul Reedy, Forensic Operations Manager of the AFP Forensic and Data Centres and Australian Bomb Data Centre director Phil Winter to visit Thailand’s Bomb Data Centre and Forensic Centre at the Southern Border Province Police Bureau (SPB) in Yala.

The visit was designed to exchange experience in bomb disposal and forensic science operations in Thailand's southern provinces which could help foster the effectiveness of security operations in provinces where insurgency-related violence continues.

Australia has expertise in investigation and cross border crime which could help strengthen Thai police capabilities, and the SPB is still in need of some kinds of equipment to support its operations. (MCOT online news)

I wonder if the GT2000 was discussed. Maybe the Ozzies have a version with corks tied to string on the end of a boomarang they can flog for a few million.

Delicate and fine forensic operations Thai style is about forty police men walking all over the crime scene and parking all their cars and pickups on the crime scene always better to get a close as possible so you don’t have so far to walk, and the chief forensic officer is the one with the baton under his arm so he can poke the corpse and move it about without physically touching it.

Don't forget all that is after the private foundation rescue units have rummaged through everything first. :(

Yes. It will be the Thais gaining from this visit. Not the other way around. I don't think the AFP will be learning a lot off these jokers. The AFP learn enough through debriefing given by ADF BD Units returning from the Ghan.

Australia has expertise in investigation and cross border crime

Given Oz doesn't actually have any borders as such, where did the Aussie old bill pick up all their cross border expertise? Back packing in Europe?

I am thinking that they refer to the work done in Bali where they had a major involvement. Also East Timor.

Yes,.. the speed camera traps between BRIS/NSW/VIC are horrendous and the fruit fly checking stations are always a bugger to get through!

My Old Man fought side by side with the Aussies in WW2 and said they were straight up folks ,and time has proven him right. Wish all you belly-achers could funnel that energy into producing something more than hot air, and not gripe about people stepping up and helping with high tech training. This will be a mutual benefit for all involved and needed in that area of ignorant violence! What are your countries doing to help our Thailand?

The Australians have excellent skills and demonstrated them in East Timor in 2006. They have provided valuable assistance in Tonga and the Solomon Islands. Personnel have also honed their mine and ordinance disposal skills in Cambodia and Afghanistan.

In addition to looking good in their shorts and flip flops and possessing incredible skills at beer can opening, Australians are the backbone of peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts in this region. Give credit where credit is due.

Well stated Geriatrickid...

And also we must not forget that the Bali Bombings are now 10 years old.

I was on the island when it happened and when the AFP forensics folks

arrived and taught the POLRI many things...

Mind you, as an aside I always remember the GT2000 as a sports car

made by Toyota and also a model of Nissan's Skyline coupe that I had

in 1976...the GTR2000...my how things have changed...from car names

to bomb detectors thyat don't work.

I would also like to point out that it was the Australian Federal Police (AFP) that bought the Bali Bombers to justice through their Forensic skills.

It was the AFP that found that the bomber in fact was a suicide bomber that wore a vest and detonated it in the first bar. This first explosion was a decoy to kill as many as possible in the bar and to make more people gather after the explosion at that location for more to be killed and maimed after the second larger explosion. They are very skilled and are a sort after force in their field.

Hopefully the Australians will learn something from this shared experience and put it to good use in the future.

You are right Australians need to learn I was in Australians and I found they are more backward than the Thais.

After reading what you wrote, I can understand why you think Australians are backward. Edited by OZEMADE
