Government

The Royal Thai Police and the Office of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on their cooperation to carry out operations in accordance with the “Organic Act on Anti-Corruption B.E. 2561 (2018).”

The MOU was signed on 23 July 2021 by the Commissioner General of the Royal Thai Police, Police General Suwat Jangyodsuk, and NACC Secretary-General Warawit Sukboon.

The signing of the MOU was intended to enhance cooperation between the Royal Thai Police and the NACC in their joint efforts to fight corruption under the Organic Act, which was issued in line with the 2017 Constitution of Thailand and came to force on 22 July 2018.

Under this MOU, the two agencies will link their databases for information sharing concerning corruption cases. They will also join hands in developing human resources, exchanging knowledge and information and developing capacity and expertise in the prevention and suppression of corruption.

On this occasion, the Commissioner General of the Royal Thai Police and NACC President Police General Watcharapol Prasarnrajkit also expressed their joint intention to cooperate in the “Integrity and Transparency Assessment (ITA)” program, with an emphasis on 88 metropolitan police stations.

ITA is an instrument designed and developed to prevent corruption, promote good governance on a national scale, and improve the performance of various organizations. It is hoped to help raise Thailand’s score in the Corruption Perceptions Index.
