Pol Col Sanan Boonphuen will cease to be superintendent of the station and will not be reinstated unless another official order on his position is made.
The urgent transfer order, made via police radio communication, was the result of a visit to Chachoengsao police station by deputy police chief Pol Gen Ek Angsananond, according to a report in Daily News.
Pol Gen Ek found that the operation of the station was not in line with cleanliness and tidiness policies set by the national police chief.
The deputy police chief found graffiti on the walls in detention cells, while several other areas in the station were dirty.
The police chief has assigned Pol Maj Gen Cherdchai Sekanand, acting commander of Chachoengsao police, to evaluate why Pol Col Sanan failed to oversee the station properly, before reporting back to the police chief.
Pol Gen Adul is known for telling police of all ranks to make sure police stations are kept clean and tidy, since they are the place that members of the public first make contact with the police.
He has warned previously that police chiefs who fail to maintain their stations would be punished, but this is the first case in which a superintendant has been transferred because of an unclean station.
Pol Gen Adul became police chief on Oct 1, 2012.
He said in a speech to subordinates in the past: "An untidy garden, a washed-out building, a filthy police station and a dejected superintendent - we can't let this go on."
Pol Col Sanan later said the station was in the process of renovation so things were untidy and the station also did not have sufficient space to stored seized motorcycles. However, he respected the decision.
There are two others police stations in Bangkok which are Nang Leng and Pathumwan stations that should urgently clean the stations to avoid similar urgent transfer.
