Zhou Yongkang: Enhance the Capability to Safeguard National Security and Social Stability

At a national symposium of provincial police chiefs in Shanghai on May 22, 2011, China’s top policeman Zhou Yongkang gave “important instructions” summarizing “precious experience” gained at major events in recent years, including the Beijing Olympic Games, the Shanghai World Expo, the Guangzhou Asian Games, and the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. 

Zhou, a member of the Politburo standing committee and head of the Communist Party’ Political and Legislative Committee, said at the symposium, “The police should adapt to changes in international and domestic situations, master general patterns, and build a strong public security force that uses innovative ideas and improved mechanisms so as to improve their ability to safeguard national security and social stability.”
