The Chungbuk Autonomous Police Committee presented a vision for improving security services ahead of the full-scale implementation of the autonomous police system on the 1st of next month.
The Chungbuk Autonomous Police Committee announced on the 30th that it has set the vision of the autonomous police system as ‘Chungbuk, where the residents are happier, and the autonomous police together’.
The first slogan is ‘It’s safe, North Chungcheong residents, I love you, autonomous police.’
The three priority policies are △Resident participation and communication △Protection of life and body of the socially disadvantaged △Protection of property of residents.
To this end, the committee first operates the ‘Autonomous Police Policy On-Site Advisory Group’ to enhance resident participation and communication in the planning, execution, and feedback process of autonomous police policies. The ‘Local Community Security Council’ operated by each police station in the province will be expanded and reorganized.
As a measure to eradicate child abuse, which has recently emerged as a social problem, the ‘plan to strengthen protection and support for the eradication of child abuse’ is promoted. The committee plans to strengthen the cooperative system by sharing information with the police, local governments, and specialized agencies, and to check and improve the response system according to the role of each agency.
‘Agricultural theft prevention measures tailored to each region’ will also be promoted, which is suitable for the characteristics of Chungbuk, an urban-rural complex. Taking into account the harvest time of each agricultural product, patrols and base work will be strengthened during times when they are vulnerable to theft. Local community security activities such as joint patrols involving local governments, crop groups, and agricultural cooperatives will also be undertaken.
For policy setting, first of all, the committee conducted a survey of 889 residents for two weeks from May 25 on the subject of ‘I wish for the autonomous police,’ and collected opinions from each police station and local government in the province.
“Local policing is the responsibility of all of us, such as the police, local governments, and related organizations, to ponder and work together with the residents,” said Nam Nam-heon, chairman of the autonomous police committee. We will provide services,” he said.
