He was speaking after a 7-Eleven staffer was attacked and beaten up by taxi drivers, without the incident being reported to police.
''Phuket is a tourist destination so all incidents involving violence must be reported for the sake of visitors and residents,'' Khun Veera said.
''We cannot have a situation where people are too scared to report law-breakers to the police.''
Khun Veera was planning to conduct his own investigation.
The man, who worked at the 7-Eleven Soi Paradise outlet, was beaten with a stick and rocks after accidentally backing his vehicle into a black taxi about 1am, Khun Veera said.
''These kinds of incidents take place too often in Patong,'' he said. ''Needless violence and intimidation is unacceptable.''
There was no information about the condition of the 7-Eleven worker.
