Thai police get new training centre  full article nationthailand.com

A new US-funded, tactical training centre for Thai police was inaugurated on Thursday (February 20).  Inspector-General, Pol General Suchart Teerasawat presided over the opening ceremony together with US Embassy’s Charge d’Affaires, Michael Heath, and Joint Interagency Task Force (JIATF) West director,Rear Admiral Robert Hayes.

The indoor centre is located at the Royal Thai Police Tactical Training Centre in Nakhon Ratchasima province. Its construction was supported by a US government budget of $2.75 million (Bt28.5 million).

 The centre is designed like an indoor mock town with a bank, shop, bus stop, traffic light, and apartment, allowing Thai police to conduct training scenarios in a crowded city-like environment.

The centre also has a closed-circuit digital recording system that will be advantageous for the trainees in reviewing their actions.

“Countering transitional criminal networks requires a team effort,” said the JIATF director. “The partnership between JIATF West, the US Drug

Enforcement Administration, and the US Embassy’s Office of Diplomatic Security and Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement with the Royal Thai Police serves as an example of that team approach and of our shared commitment to fight crime.”

Interesting and also curious article.
"a US government budget of $2.75 million" that doesn't get you very much, even in Nakhon Nowhere.
Is that a misprunt?

"transitional criminal networks" is also meaningless and is probably another misprunt for 'transnational criminal networks', i.e Organised Crime.

Even apart from the above 2 examples, I'd suggest that if the US is going to fund programs here in Thailand, they should try to teach them better English.
(better English, better understand US Constitution values, better understand English values).
Rather than what it sounds like: "We've funded a ToyTown where your police can learn how to shoot people."

IMHO (and only slightly drunk)
