More Police Personnel to be Recruited by the City

More Police Personnel to be Recruited by the CityAs the city faces grave social security situation because of the constant increase in the transient population, the city will be recruiting around 10,000 more police in the next couple of years. Currently there re 19,000 police officers serving more than 15 million residents in the city.

The city advisory body also said that from the total of 15 million people in the city 12 million of them are not long term residents. Because of this large migrant population makes the city more difficult to police, that’s is why the city is in need of more police officers. Shenzhen have been implementing a series of measures that was meant to improve social security.

Statistics shows that there are more than 6 million rented apartments in the city, and the government is planning to invest in the improvements of management of these rented apartments. The government will also assign more police to conduct routine patrols in the urban and suburban areas in the city.

An adviser from Hong Kong suggested that the city should deploy volunteers and create an auxiliary police force like developed countries do. This auxiliary police force can provide extra people to assist especially in times of natural disaster or civil emergencies. Auxiliary police can also be called in to do crowd control during public events and festivals.
