Xinhua News reported on August 17 that Meng Jianzhu, State Councilor and Minister of Public Security, said in a video conference that the whole police system should treat the safety of the 60th Anniversary event as the number one “political task.” Seriously cracking down on the activities by the domestic and international “hostile forces” was mentioned as important work. Another primary aspect of the mission is to combine the power of the police system and the volunteers across the country to form a tight network to control society. All controls should be carefully divided down to every level until the individuals. This is crucial to ensure the stability of local areas and the capital area.
