Solved rob­bery cases in Bei­jing hit 100 per­cent for first time, say po­lice

Global Times US Edition - - FOCUS A -

Ninety per­cent of homi­cide cases were cracked within 24 hours and de­tec­tion rates for rob­beries hit 100 per­cent for the first time in Bei­jing from Jan­uary to June, said Bei­jing’s pub­lic se­cu­rity bu­reau on Wed­nes­day.

In the first half year, Bei­jing po­lice solved a to­tal of 33,000 crim­i­nal cases, with homi­cide case reg­is­tra­tion drop­ping by 22 per­cent and with a de­tec­tion rate of 100 per­cent for five con­sec­u­tive years, ac­cord­ing to the press con­fer­ence. From Jan­uary to June, more than 26,000 sus­pects have been seized, an in­crease of 2.7 per­cent year-on-year.

Eight types of felonies dropped by 18 per­cent, a new low in his­tory, while the de­tec­tion rate hit 83.3 per­cent, a record high.

Rob­bery and fraud make up the ma­jor­ity of crim­i­nal cases at 41.6 per­cent and 36.3 per­cent re­spec­tively, ac­cord­ing to the press con­fer­ence.

Since house-break­ing tends to evolve into bur­glar­ies, the po­lice man­aged to lower the case reg­is­tra­tion rate of Bei­jing’s house-break­ing theft by 28.4 per­cent and in­crease the de­tec­tion rate by 13.2 per­cent through preven­tion and crack­downs.

The num­ber of reg­is­tered ve­hi­cle thefts has been brought to un­der 100, a de­crease of 23.1 per­cent year-on-year, a record low.

More than 500 tele­com fraud cases have been cracked, mark­ing a 17 per­cent yearon-year in­crease. More than 1,000 tele­com fraud sus­pects have been ar­rested, pre­vent­ing losses of 760 million yuan ($108.6 million) for the pub­lic.

In March, the Bei­jing po­lice es­tab­lished a lab­o­ra­tory with 14 high-tech com­pa­nies across the coun­try, developing and im­ple­ment­ing in­tel­li­gent, vir­tual re­al­ity and cus­tom­ized prod­ucts for in­ter­net, tra­di­tional and oc­cu­pa­tional crimes. The move has en­hanced the cap­i­tal city’s crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion ca­pa­bil­ity in crack­ing down on crimes.
