Police in Beijing will strengthen efforts to fight against drug
deals next year to make sure that no dangerous goods or drugs will
flow into the capital. This is to ensure that Beijing will have a
drug-free Olympics next year, said Fu Zhenghua, deputy director of
the Beijing Municipal Anti-Drug Committee, also deputy director of
the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau, last week.
Beijing police will put special efforts into the fight against
drug deals in public places. They have eradicated three main drug
transaction markets in Beijing, one in Wanzi in Xuanwu District,
one in Wanquansi in Fengtai District and one in Ganjiakou in
Haidian District. Moreover, the public order in eight places
involved in drug deals has become better, Fu said.
The underground drug selling market has been handled
effectively. Now, the drug market has had to transfer to outer
suburbs, holiday resorts, or clubs, and it has become smaller and
therefore drug addicts find it harder to buy drugs in large amounts
nowadays, Fu noted.
For the 2008 Olympic Games, Beijing police have outlined a goal
that no drugs will be found in entertainment places, in public
places or in community centers. In order to realize these goals,
police in Beijing will face a tougher task next year. To make sure
that no drugs will flow into Beijing from the Golden Crescent area,
Beijing police will set up a professional work team to crack down
on drug deals and train more sniffer dogs and equip themselves with
better drug-detecting devices. Police will set up a scheme to
reward those who report drug deals to police or help police in
fighting against drug trafficking.
