17 October - National Police Day or Wan Tamruat in Thailand
National Police Day in Thailand from 1915 to 2016 was celebrated on October 13.
Until the 19th century Royal Thai Armed Forces personnel, aside from their duties of national defence, also performed law enforcement duties alongside dedicated civil servants.
The Royal Thai Police employs between 210,700 and 230,000 officers, roughly 17 percent of all civil servants (excluding the military and the employees of state-owned enterprises, 2016). The RTP is frequently recognized as the fourth armed force of Thailand since their tradition, concept, culture, skill, and training are relatively similar to the army and most of their officer cadets need to graduate from the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School before entering the Royal Thai Police Cadet Academy. Officers also undergo paramilitary training similar to the army but with an additional focus on law enforcement.
The officials all speak English, often in addition to further foreign languages. The Thai police are usually friendly, helpful and polite to foreigners.
