Updated: 2018-09-13

Guangzhou police have set up 41 stations to manage expat-related affairs in communities that house more than 500 foreigners, in an effort to upgrade services.

Rooms for promoting Chinese culture, customs, laws and policies have also been established in some communities with more than 50 foreigners, with cultural, sport and family activities being organized, said Cai Wei, deputy director of the Guangzhou Public Security Bureau.

The police have enlisted more than 60 foreign volunteers from universities and companies to help with expat-related affairs in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province.

A joint-meeting mechanism involving the police and government departments has been optimized to better serve expats and manage related affairs.

The police are using a number of social media platforms and their mobile app to promote expat-related information, Cai said.
