So far, the provincial police department has completed the plan to strengthen the communal police force; as a result, 427 commissioned officers were posted to police posts of 119/119 communes in the province. With the result, the province has reached the target 2 years ahead of the schedule.
According to surveys, the plan has brought about initial good outcomes as it has created positive changes in security and order at the grassroots level.
The An Giang Provincial Police Department is now taking steps to improve facilities and working conditions for police officers at communal police posts, by erecting 47 new buildings as the headquarters of the 47 communal police posts.
