Beijing Starts Population Management Pilot Scheme

09-21-2011 16:21 BJT

Beijing's Municipal Public Security Bureau has launched a pilot program for population management in Changping District and selected residential spots over the course of the next three months, the "Beijing Daily" reports.

The move aims to shift the focus of the city's population management and services, from household management towards geographic information-based management.

The pilot program requires police to collect information detailing all buildings and residents within the district. In the future, the information of the city's population and buildings will be featured on an electronic map. By selecting the details of a community on the map, the information of all residents, corresponding apartments and surrounding facilities, including community service stations and garbage dumps, will be clearly displayed.

Zhang Wei, deputy head of the Population Management Corps of the Municipal Public Security Bureau, said that the information will then be transferred to the management information platform, allowing police to easily locate all aboveground structures on the map, including high-rise buildings, shopping malls, stadiums, and even public toilets, according to the report.

When police select a building on the electronic map, they will be able to tell how many long-term residents and temporary rental tenants are living there, which will be helpful in cases of emergency. Moreover, information of all residents and facilities of the surrounding area will also be displayed.

The scheme will allow authorities to see whether a community has more senior residents, in which case the government department will set up more facilities such as food markets to cater to their needs. The map is intended to provide a reference, allowing authorities to balance the allocation of community resources, Zhang said.
