Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

Po­lice li­ai­son of­fi­cers sta­tioned in Chi­nese em­bassies and con­sulates have helped ar­rest and re­turn more than 1,000 crim­i­nal sus­pects back to China by 2016 year-end as part of a pro­gram to im­prove law en­force­ment co­op­er­a­tion with other coun­tries, the Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity (MPS) said on Septem­ber 24.

Ac­cord­ing to the MPS, so far China has sent a to­tal of 64 po­lice li­ai­son of­fi­cers to 31 for­eign coun­tries.

They have helped han­dle 4,460 cross-bor­der cases, and helped crack a se­ries of tele­com fraud cases in Thai­land and the Philip­pines.

The li­ai­son of­fi­cers also played a key role in safe­guard­ing over­seas Chi­nese lives and prop­erty, the MPS said.
