Senior Communist Party of China official Zhou Yongkang on Saturday called for more efforts on providing the country with a high-quality police force through improved education and training.
The member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee made the remark here at a forum marking the 60th anniversary of the Chinese People's Public Security University.
He spoke highly of the achievements the institution had made and urged those involved to turn it into a "cradle" of loyal guardians of the Party and the people and the "frontier" of promoting the development of public security theory.
The public security organs must "stick to the path of strengthening the police capability through science and education" and strive to build a force of high quality.
Zhou also asked the university to enhance exchanges and cooperation with their international counterparts and constantly innovate in their teachings.
The university, under the Ministry of Public Security, has so far trained more than 170,000 police.
