Armed police deployed to patrol Sanya’s key areas 24 hours a day
Since the beginning of this year, the Sanya Municipal Public Security Bureau has been continually enhancing its security force presence in some key areas such as the railway station, Sanya Phoenix International Airport, and at bus stations.
Except for the permanent police dispatched by the District Public Office, the Municipal Public Security Bureau is also sending additional regimental police and armed police to guard key areas 24 hours a day, in order to reduce the chance of all kinds of crimes and guarantee the stability of public order in crowded areas. A resident who lives near the railway station says that people living there are feel at ease because patrol policemen are present every day and night.
The police are required to continue to strengthen the patrol in key areas, making sure passengers are asked to submit their carry-on items for complete inspection by personnel. They also enforce use of the electronic security devices and prevent passengers from getting into the station while carrying controlled knives or other dangerous or prohibited objects. By using these measures they are hoping to prevent and investigate illegal activities, take precautions against terrorism, and maintain public order.
