The public security authorities in Guiyang – capital city of Southwest China's Guizhou province – have been moving to upgrade public security via big data and have rolled out more convenient, easier and more intelligent services for the general public.
A top priority is reportedly maintaining the public's sense of security at a level of more than 95 percent and establishing Guiyang as one of the safest provincial capitals in China during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25).
Chen Xiaogang, director of the Guiyang Municipal Public Security Bureau, said in a recent meeting that the city's police are focused on using big data and have pushed to deploy it to bolster reforms and tackle social problems.
Leveraging the strategic advantages of Guiyang's national big data comprehensive zone, the police have rolled out a series of initiatives. These include new functions for situation analysis, intelligence research and judgment, early warnings, public security management and controls and synthetic operations.
After applying for replacement of an ID card at a local intelligent police station, a resident in Guiyang's Huaguoyuan community said she had experienced "no queuing, easy handling and doorstep services".
To meet the public's demands for 24-hour services – such as replacement of resident identity cards – Guiyang has equipped 100 stations with self-service machines.
Since the start of operations, the big data application had reportedly registered 810,000 people by May 25, with an estimated 3.45 million services provided.
The application also reportedly enables the public to be involved in recording illegal behavior.
Both the stations and the application are viewed to be advancing Guiyang's intelligent policing.
As a result, Guiyang has reportedly entered the fast lane in the development and application of big data, which has further pushed modern policing forwards.
