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.
