Changsha to Expand Public Security Forces into Three Public Professions

After mobilizing 1,200 tax drivers to participate in public security, the authority of Changsha, the capital city of Hunan Province, decided on October 30 to expand the network by “assimilating 5,300 public transportation employees, environment workers, and postmen into the troops of ‘Volunteers for Safety,’ assisting the police to combat criminal activities.”

The decision was reportedly based on the nature of the three professions, which require close and constant contact with the population at the street and neighborhood level. The city government will coordinate with the employers of the participants for their pay and an offer extra bonus for their “outstanding contributions.”
