An exchange programme was held in Hanoi on August 14 to celebrate the 70th traditional day of the Vietnam People’s Police Force (August 19). 

The participants recalled the force’s golden historic pages as well as their close coordination with the Vietnam People’s Army in national construction and defence.

They shared experience in mass mobilisation in areas inhabited by ethnic minority groups and investigation into criminal cases, with the most worthy of note being the fight against the FULRO reactionary organisation in the Central Highlands, which saw joint efforts of the two forces.

The programme also honoured border police and guards who scarified their lives during the drug combat at the peaceful time.

A broad range of activities were also organised in localities across the nation to mark the force’s traditional day and the 10th anniversary of the “All people protect national security” festival.

At a conference in the Mekong Delta province of Can Tho on August 14 to review the outcomes of the campaign in the 2005-2015 period, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Le Van Tam considered all people’s protecting national security a fundamental and long-term strategy.

Over the past decade, the festival has been integrated into other campaigns, attracting the participation of people from all social strata, he said.

The same day, the Mekong Delta province of An Giang honoured outstanding collectives and individuals in implementing the drive over the past ten years.

A meeting in the southern province of Binh Duong heard that since the foundation of the province, local police detected 6,295 criminal cases and revoked nearly 109 billion VND (4.9 million USD) for the State.

On this occasion, four units and individuals of Binh Duong received the “Hero of People’s Armed Forces” title while the three others got the Independence Order, third class, for their contributions to the campaign.-VNA
