As the import expo nears, urban teams step up surveillance work
October 08, 2019
The clock is ticking down on the start of the second China International Import Expo, less than 30 days to go. The Xujing urban management and law enforcement team is ready and waiting.
The team has 32 members, including 22 front-line law enforcement staff. Their jurisdiction covers 30 square kilometers, including the National Exhibition and Convention Center in the Qingpu District where the high-profile event will be held from November 5 to 10.
The team’s duties span nearly 300 activities, including “cleaning up” areas adjacent to the exhibition center. They have dismantled unauthorized structures in apartment blocks, closed down illegal stalls, cleared unlawful outdoor advertisements, removed junk stored in public spaces and confiscated unauthorized flyers.
