A FULL set of Malaysian police uniform and accessories can be bought for just RM500 in the southern Thailand town of Danok, according to a report by China Press.

Police uniform, beret, belt, handcuffs, badge and airgun replicas are easily available in five or six shops that sell daily necessities.

Reflective vests and accessories of the Malaysian Customs Depart-ment and National Anti-Drugs Agency are also sold.

A sales assistant said that most customers were Malaysian policemen as well as business owners who resell the items to the men in blue.

A reporter, who pretended to be a customer, was told that the shops avoided raids by Thai police and authorities by either closing temporarily or offering bribes.

Save for a shop which is said to have a licence and recognised by the Malaysian Government as a seller of police accessories, two other shops did not require customers to show police identification cards when they make a purchase.
