HÀ NỘI — To mark the 60th anniversary of the People’s Police force a special exhibition has been organised displaying the latest high-tech crime fighting equipment.

It is being held at Hà Nội Museum and also features the many modes of transport used by the various police departments as well as artefacts and documents detailing the history of the force which was established on July 20, 1962.

One of the organisers of the exhibition, Nguyễn Bích Vân, said as criminals become more sophisticated, the police must evolve to beat them.

She said: “Through the exhibition, we want to introduce the proud history of the police forces in the last 60 years to domestic and international visitors as well as our police officers.

“We hope that this will help to educate the young generation in police forces to try their best to fulfill the tasks set by the Government and the Party.

“There are many forms of crimes in today life, including economic, environmental as well high technology crimes. The equipment and technology that the ministry of public security deploys for police forces have met the requirements for them to fulfil the tasks.”

This is just many events organised to mark the occasion.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính spoke at a ceremony where he praised the accomplishments and contributions that the force has made over the past six decades.

He said: “During the glorious journey that is also full of hardship, thousands of officers of the force have died or been injured in duty to protect the people. Even when the country is in peace, members of the police force are still shedding blood to protect the peaceful and happy live of the people.”

To mark each year since the police were established, 60 outstanding individuals received honours for their dedication and efforts in the line of duty. VNS
