Key players within the US Embassy’s Law Enforcement Working Group including: The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement, Diplomatic Security, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Naval Facilities Command collaborated with the Royal Thai Police – Police Education Bureau, in the development of this facility. “The United States has been, and will remain, a strong partner in fostering the joint law enforcement relationship between our two countries. Projects such as this will serve as the cornerstone of this relationship for years to come,” said Ambassador Davies.
