Public demonstrations over public policy issues are common in Thailand. Many of these protests are staged in Bangkok – the center of political and administrative power in the country. The Bangkok Metropolitan Police are often on the frontline responding to these conflict situations. After several senior members of the force responsible for riot control attended conflict management training sessions delivered by Pacific Resolutions in association with Khon Kaen Institute for Dispute Resolution, they requested that the training team deliver the program to all 120 police chiefs in Bangkok. The course material was supplemented with information on approaches used by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in responding to hostage taking and barricade incidents. The BKK Police Chiefs worked through the program using real cases that they have been involved in.
