  Naret Worarit

 

Thailand

Statue of H.R.H. Prince Naret Worarit, the 17th child and 8th son of King Mongkut, in front of the HQ of the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau.

 

After a 1890 visit to Singapore with his half-brother King Chulalongkorn, i.e. Rama V, he reorganized the Siamese police force in the manner of the Singaporean model, and later developed it into the Royal Thai Police. The prince is hence remembered as a prominent personage of the Thai Police Force.
