Frontline cops to undergo weapons training, paper says

China’s frontline policemen will undergo training in the use of standard weapons, including guns, clubs, tear gas and anti-riot weapons, Beijing Times reported Friday, citing guidelines issued by the Ministry of Public Security. The training aims to ensure that law enforcers, especially those patrolling the streets, can effectively deal with violent crimes and similarly dangerous situations. It will consist of a three-month basic training, including participation in live-fire drills held once a year, the report said.
