Thailand’s National Anti-Corruption Commission says 86% of police stations around the country have failed to pass transparency and integrity tests. According to a Bangkok Post report, nearly 1,500 police stations underwent transparency assessments, with 86% found lacking.
The tests are conducted yearly, with the NACC releasing the results to the public. Government services for the public, including police stations and district offices, undergo integrity and transparency assessments (ITAs). Each agency assessed must receive a minimum score of 85 to pass, with 95 or above considered excellent.
According to the NACC’s chairman, the country’s police stations give cause for concern as their average score is too low. The Bangkok Post reports that in total, 111,305 police officers and 830,822 members of the public were assessed. The average score of all 1,484 police stations was 67.43. Only 208 police stations passed the assessments, with 1,276 failing.
Yan Nawa Police Station in Bangkok was the highest-scoring station in the country, with a score of 99.02. Meanwhile, 24 police stations received zero points, according to the report. They include Laem Ngop and Ao Cho in Tak province, Hin Lek Fai in Buri Ram, Mueang Chan and Tum in Si Sa Ket, and Napho station in Ubon Ratchathani.
