Addressing the event, Minister To Lam emphasized that the communal police force plays an important role in grasping the local situation and resolving cases from the grassroots level. They also give advice to local Party Committees and authorities to better organize the movement “All people protecting National security”.

Minister To Lam also briefed the participants on the ongoing process of reorganizing the Ministry of Public Security’s apparatus in accordance with Resolution 22 of the Politburo, saying that the Ministry of Public Security will post commissioned police officers to areas with complex social and security issues, and will apply the model nationwide after some relevant legal documents have been completed.
