U.S. Embassy & Consulateb in Thailand -- On June 24, the United States donated investigative tools with a value of approximately 3.11 million THB (100,000 USD) to the Royal Thai Government to counter transnational crime and fight drug trafficking as part of a longstanding U.S.-Thai law enforcement partnership. Consul General Sean O’Neill presented the equipment to Pol.Lt.Gen. Prachaub Wongsuk, Commissioner of Provincial Police Region 5.

The donation was made possible by the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). INL has funded activities to combat trafficking in illegal drugs, terrorism, and transnational organized crime, and provided material assistance to counter-drug and law enforcement activities in Thailand for over 40 years. INL collaborates with the Royal Thai Government, other U.S. government entities, regional governments, and non-governmental organizations to develop initiatives to build capacity in the criminal justice sector in Thailand and regionally.

“The United States is proud to support Thailand in countering transnational crime and drug trafficking to better protect our families and communities.” said Consul General Sean O’Neill. “U.S.-Thai law enforcement cooperation strengthens the national security of both Thailand and the United States.”
