BANGKOK: -- The authorities will beef up security measures with extra patrols and surveillance for the mass transit system and other public places in the city of Bangkok, said the Bangkok Governor Apirak Kosayothin.

Speaking after his talks with Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Pol. Maj. Gen. Dusitsan Therapat, the governor disclosed that the police and the private companies running the mass transit system in the capital would jointly work to tighten security in skytrains, subways, and city buses.

Officials will also step up security in the public places in particular at the parking lots in public parks and department stores. Additional patrols will be conducted to check every corner including trash bins.

Mr. Apirak suggested that people should carry their identity cards in case they are asked to show them to the police. Everyone should report to police if they notice any irregularity.

Although, there is no report of any threat in Bangkok, all necessary safety measures will be put in place, the governor said.

More closed circuit cameras will be installed in public places in the future, he added.
