BEIJING, July 12 (Xinhuanet) -- Police in Chongqing municipality have tightened online monitoring since Saturday as part of a three-month school security overhaul.
Local fears about the recent attacks on schools were renewed when media reported on Friday that a father in the city's Fengjie county, who claimed his baby died from drinking melamine-tainted formula, was sent to a labor camp for reeducation after he made Web posts saying he would kill children in revenge.
Liu Guanglei, secretary of the political and legislative affairs committee of the Communist Party of China's Chongqing committee, announced a comprehensive overhaul of campus security will take place from July 10 until Oct 10.
"(We should) prescribe drastic medicines to completely eliminate factors that undermine school security," Liu told a teleconference, the Chongqing Morning News reported.
Chongqing police and relevant authorities also issued 10 online content bans, prohibiting "pornography, rumors, false reports about dangerous or epidemic situations on campus networks, or other means of intentionally disturbing school education".
Officials with the municipal police bureau's political department told China Daily on Sunday that they could not elaborate on how local police determine what content crosses the line.
But the page bottom of Chongqing University's Web forum showed an icon that depicted a police officer blinking while sitting behind a board that read: "Chongqing Web Police".
