Holiday kept safe with 20,000 on patrol

MORE than 20,000 police and firefighters patrolled Shanghai streets during the Spring Festival from February 9 to 16. Thanks to their efforts, the city had a peaceful holiday, the Shanghai Public Security Bureau said yesterday.

Shanghai police strengthened their patrols in the city's major commercial areas, scenic spots, and transport hubs to prevent accidents and crimes.

Fire engines also plied Shanghai streets on the eve of the Chinese New Year and on February 13 when people set off fireworks in a tradition to welcome the God of Fortune.

Police helicopters watched for fires during the holiday, the bureau said. Police also conducted safety checks in hotels, restaurants and shopping centers to locate and correct fire hazards.

Shanghai traffic police worked with colleagues in neighboring Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces to monitor highways. As a result, more than 1.77 million auto vehicles entered or left Shanghai smoothly during the holiday.
