On May 14th, Deputy Director-General of the Correction Department, Somsak Rangsiyopas presided over scout training for young male prisoners at Phuket Provincial Prison.
Mr Somsak said, “The Correction Department holds scout training for prisoners to treat their behaviour, including fostering responsibilities and their ability to socialise. For those who’ve used drugs, it is essential for them to hold on to the scout oaths. Moreover, it’s found those who’ve been trained find it easier to blend in with others.”
As for the problems of cellphones and drugs, Mr Somsak added, “Officials at Phuket Provincial Prison have strictly inspected the prisoners and the compound. As these problems have been entirely eliminated, Phuket Provincial Phuket will soon be promoted as a White Prison.”
