BEIJING, March 1 (Xinhua) -- China has made a slew of efforts to streamline police officers' law enforcement practices, according to a circular issued Thursday by the Ministry of Public Security which took stock of efforts made in this field.

Since the ministry ordered law enforcement officials to be "strict and just" as well as "rational and civilized" in 2008, police authorities have strived to streamline the nation's law enforcement practices through installing standardized facilities and introducing regulations, police education and online administration.

By January this year, 31,372 out of 40,662 community-level police stations have completed retrofitting projects, including setting up interrogation rooms, waiting rooms, rooms for the safekeeping of case-related materials and rooms with other specific functions, as well as installing recorders and video cameras in all of these rooms in order to put police actions under scrutiny.

The ministry has issued a series of guidelines to regulate law enforcement practices, including guidelines on interrogations and stopping ongoing crimes and other offenses.

Furthermore, the ministry organized a law-enforcement license examination in 2011, and over two million police officers nationwide have taken the exam so far.

Information technology has also made law enforcement more transparent. Police authorities at all levels disclose case proceedings, information on administrative approval and licensing, and other information on their websites.
