Retired police officers to play

Date Posted: 1999-01-08

The chief of the National Public Safety Committee, Tsukasa Nishida, announced a plan to increase the number of police officers staying in Koban (small, local police station, often called ‘Police Box’) this year and increase the funding for the project. Koban are located in every neighborhood in Japan, but some of them do not have police officers at all times.

The aim of the project is to increase the number of officers in order to decrease Koban that are unmanned at times. For that purpose, the committee has devised a plan to hire retired police officers to man Koban as the advisers of public safety.

In Okinawa, eight retired police officers are working as the advisers of public safety at Koban in Naha, Okinawa, Urasoe, Ginowan and Gushikawa Cities. The Okinawa Prefectural Police are now requesting the Prefectural Office to increase the advisers of public safety from eight people to 16 this year.

The advisers who work in Koban are hired as part time employees, although they are playing an important role for the public safety. The number of incidents involving and solved by the advisers in Okinawa in 1997 was 9,573.
