The Model of the Police System in Modern China: Research on the Establishment and Operating Mechanism of the Beijing Police Department

Qinhan ZENG, Rong ZENG


The Beijing Police Department was founded in a period of great revolution in our country’s knowledge system and drastic social changes. As a “model” for the construction of police administration throughout the country, the daily operation, development, and evolution of the Beijing Police Department has promoted the integration of modern Western policing thoughts and the innovation of traditional public security concepts, and promoted the inheritance of police knowledge and the construction of police theories. The conflict interweaving and interest entanglement under the background of the struggle of the Beiyang factions promoted the transition from ancient policing to modern policing, and realized the development and transformation of the modern police system.
