Police doing important work

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

It might be good after they give them training.

Many Cambodians dont have driving lessons as we do in other countries. They just get in the car and go. Some of them are like learner drivers without a teacher. There can also be other factors, like being drunk. So the poorly trained police are evenly matched with the poorly trained drivers. At least it is fair.

I am starting to think that Cambodia's difficulty in meeting the expectations of some westerners are perhaps caused by educational and income standards. The average Australian policeman with 5 - 7 years experience makes 77,900 ASD. and has a bachelor's degree from a recognized university.
I believe that Cambodian police salary and educational requirements to become a policeman may be lower.

Hey, this is Sihanoukville. You do not need to be Cambodian to drive badly while drunk and without a license. The good part is that the cops now confiscate cars instead of motorbikes. That must be an improvement in their living standards. And they deserve it.

Yes here they generally have to pay 77,900 ASD to get the job.

In the vid they had the courtesy to salute... It's a nice touch.

The police made no dough tho...

Would have loved to see someone getting a positive and paying the grand... or getting the beats..

looks like one of the guys early in the second vid give his cop some "let me pass" money just off camera. hmm, maybe the machine did work correctly for him....
