Chart of the Day: A due salute to the Chinese people's police


This year's January 10 marks the fourth Chinese People's Police Day.  

According to a survey conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics in 2021, some 98.6 percent of those who polled said they felt safe living in China, up by 11 percentage points from 2012. And this result has much to do with the contributions of the Chinese people's police across the country.

China witnessed a 4.8-percent decline in criminal cases in 2023 compared to the previous year, according to the Ministry of Public Security.

Public security agencies across China dismantled over 1,900 criminal organizations and cracked around 29,000 criminal cases in 2023, the ministry said at a press conference on Tuesday.

Regarding telecom and online fraud activities based in northern Myanmar and affecting Chinese citizens, Chinese police carried out multiple rounds of crackdown in collaboration with their counterparts from Myanmar, with around 41,000 suspects transferred from Myanmar to Chinese custody, according to the ministry.

The Chinese police maintained a tough stance on crimes related to food and drug security throughout the past year, with around 19,000 such cases solved and 28,000 suspects arrested, the ministry said.

The Chinese People's Police Day is observed on January 10 every year, corresponding with the country's emergency call number of 110. The establishment of this celebration was approved in 2020 in recognition of the extraordinary work of the country's public security guardians and public safety insurance.
