TRAINING FOR ROYAL THAI POLICE: THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE RULE OF LAW FOR THE ENFORCEMENT OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE
ON 19th NOVEMBER 2014 CISCE SIU ORGANISED A TRAINING SEMINAR FOR MEMBERS OF THE INQUIRY OFFICIALS’ ASSOCIATION OF THAILAND (ROYAL THAI POLICE)
In October 2014 CISCE received a series of expressions of interest from Police Colonel Dr Mana Pochauy on behalf of the Inquiry Officials’ Association of Thailand (Royal Thai Police) in undertaking a training seminar at Shinawatra University (SIU). Such training would constitute part of SIU’s professional training programme (which CISCE has been tasked to help implement).
The programme for this seminar consisted of 4 presentations (with question and answer sessions included in each one). The titles of these presentations were:
1. Principles of Public Administration Philosophy (presented by Professor Dr Voradej Chandarasorn, President of SIU)
2. The Legal System of England (presented by Mr Andrew Elliott)
3. Sir Robert Peel's 9 Principles of Professional Policing (presented by Mr Andrew Elliott)
4. The Rule of Law and its Implications for Criminal Justice Enforcement (presented by Mr Andrew Elliott)
An opening ceremony was conducted by Police General Vudhichai Sriratanavudhi, Chairman of the Inquiry Officials’ Association of Thailand (Royal Thai Police). Certificates of attendance and participation were distributed to participants upon the event's conclusion by Professor Dr Voradej Chandarasorn, President of Shinawatra University (SIU).
The full programme for this event may be viewed here.
A list of the participants in this seminar from the Inquiry Officials’ Association of Thailand (Royal Thai Police) may be viewed here.
Certificates were distributed to those who joined the seminar entitling them – on the basis of their attendance and participation – to earn 0.5 of a credit against SIU’s Master of Public Administration degree. A sample certificate may be viewed here.
In the interests of best practice, participants were asked at the seminar’s conclusion to complete questionnaires providing CISCE with feedback (so that we can use this to improve the effectiveness of future seminars we conduct). Please find here a summary of feedback results and comments.
