BEIJING, July 7 (Xinhua) -- A senior Chinese official has called on joint and intensified efforts to investigate and remove public security risks and ensure the lasting social stability.
Wang Lequan, deputy secretary of the Political and Legal Affairs Commission of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remark at a working conference here Tuesday.
Wang also urged that more efforts should be focused on the routine management, rather than punishment in maintaining public security.
Wang called Party organizations and relevant governmental departments at all levels in China to conduct thorough check on risks and problems posing threat to the public security, especially the situation of public order in the less-developed areas in the cities, and make sure that there is no "blind spot" left in the check.
Wang urged intensified efforts to crack down and uproot gang crimes.
He also called relevant departments to give full play to mediation in the social disputes resolution.
Concrete measures should be taken to ensure the livelihood and employment of the people and meet their real needs, Wang said.
Wang also urged personnel and resources to be increased in school security safeguarding.
