Thai National Police Chief on Wednesday alongside high-ranking police officers and the police representatives from the Australian Federal Police paid visit to the newly established "Center for Operation and Crisis Incident Management" in Bangkok.

The center was set up following the official instruction from the National Police Chief Pol Gen Wichean Potephosree on Sept. 30 and fully opened up Wednesday.

In response to the recently frequent bomb attacks in Bangkok and its vicinity, the center is designated to enhance the capability of bombing inspection by introducing post blast investigation (PBI) technique under the collaboration of Forensic Police, Explosive Ordnance Department and other relevant agencies.

The deputy National Police Chief Pol Gen Phanupong Singhara na Ayutthaya was assigned to oversee the center which is located at Bomb Data Center on Setsiri Road in center Bangkok.

The center is committed to upholding rapidity, efficiency and local support as its principles for bomb inspection. It will also focus heavily on analyzing the links of bombing cases in Bangkok and its adjacent provinces which are claimed to have occurred 114 times since March 12 when the anti-government "red-shirts" movement started their prolonged demonstration.
