Pichai Watcharawongpaiboon, director of The 3rd Conservation Area Administration Office in Phetchaburi, said the troops would help the department in public relations with villagers, especially women and children.

"Besides, the troops can help resolve conflicts between the department and villagers, as they can frisk female suspects freely," he said.
