On January 26th 2011 at Sire Ballroom, Westin Sire Bay Resort and Spa, Pol.Col. Wanchai Akeporapit, the commander of Phuket Provincial Police, and Sean Raine, the Hotel Manager of Westin Sire Bay Resort and Spa together singed an MOU (memorandum of understanding) on the White Hotel Project.
The White Hotel is a project of Phuket Provincial Police to prevent and suppress drugs abuse and drugs trading in Hotels. If there are any staff in the hotel found using drugs, they will be sent for re-habilitation with Phuket Public Health. After re-habilitation, if the staff still uses drugs, they will be arrested by the police. Hotels that join the project will be promoted as White Hotels.
