A woman is escorted by police after withdrawing cash from a bank in Shijiazhuang, north China's Hebei province.

The 110 police hotline service said on Wednesday that the service is available to everyone in Nanjing until at least the beginning of China's Lunar New Year, which falls on Jan 23 this year.

Those in need of the service should alert police ahead of time.

In Guilin, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, police launched similar services following the Nanjing shooting and escorted at least one depositor who carried 300,000 yuan in cash to a local bank on Sunday morning, according to the Guilin Evening News.

Residents and companies were also on high alert.

"We arrange more people and designate cars when withdrawing a huge amount of cash these days," said Zhang Wenhua, the head of a mechanics company in Nanjing. "I also told the cashier not to choose bank outlets in remote areas."

More than 13,000 police officers in Nanjing and other cities are still searching for the suspect, believed to be 42-year-old Zeng Kaigui, a former armed police officer.

So far the total rewards for clues has been raised to more than 1.95 million yuan, including a 200,000 yuan reward recently announced by police in Ma'anshan, Anhui province, 78 kilometers from Nanjing.

A number of well-known crime experts from Jiangsu and nearby provinces have gathered in Nanjing to crack the case. Hundreds of reports of clues were handed over but some turned out to be pranks.

"I have confidence in Nanjing police capturing the suspect," said Ji Alin, deputy bureau chief of Taizhou police and a noted crime expert of Jiangsu.
