Regarding its task performance in the first 6 months of 2018, reports read that there were more than 25,800 criminal cases nationwide, down by 0.17% compared to the same period last year. The police force solved 20,516 cases or 79.5%, and arrested 45,503 suspects.
However, criminal gangs tended to move from the North now to the Highlands and southern areas. They then associated with local criminals to conduct protection racket, violent activities, usury and illegal encroachment of public land, which made the local situation complicated. In this situation, the criminal police force stamped out 1,028 criminal gangs and 4,869 subjects of organized crimes.
At the conference, delegates of the departments and delegates from local police discussed and proposed solutions to control crimes.

He also congratulated the new appointed leaders of the Department.

The department should also actively grasp and closely follow developments of the crime situation while the collection of information, documents and statics on crimes must be authentic and comprehensive in order to properly analyse and assess the crime situation.
The Deputy Minister also urged the force to strengthen cooperation with relevant units within and outside the public security forces to promote crime prevention and fight; coordinate with all agencies, branches and organizations to disseminate information and laws, and mobilize people to take part in preventing and reporting on crimes, as well as promote the comprehensive power of the political system and the people in crime prevention and fight.
