Zhang Jie,

Beijing Review - - This Week -

37, a po­lice of­fi­cer of the Pub­lic Se­cu­rity Bu­reau of Bengbu, east China’s An­hui Prov­ince, has been hon­ored by the Pub­lic­ity Depart­ment of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee as “the Model of the Time” for his hero­ism in com­bat­ing crimes.

Zhang, also a mem­ber of the CPC, has com­pleted many mis­sions for emer­gen­cies re­gard­less of his own safety. On Jan­uary 5, 2016, a crim­i­nal sus­pect threat­ened to det­o­nate a liq­ue­fied gas cylin­der and a pe­tro­leum can­is­ter in a res­i­den­tial build­ing. As a mem­ber of the task force for emer­gen­cies, Zhang rushed to the sus­pect at the last sec­ond be­fore the ex­plo­sion. He used his body to shield the ex­plo­sion, which caused Zhang and a fel­low of­fi­cer to sus­tain sec­ond-de­gree burns. On Novem­ber 18, 2016, Zhang be­came one of the first re­cip­i­ents of the ti­tle Na­tional Model Po­lice­men, awarded by the Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity.
