TCPD Organizes Personal Safety Forum for International Students at NTUT

TCPD talks about student safety at NTUTIn light of the recent campus safety incident in Tainan, the Taipei City Police Department (TCPD) announced that it will adopt measures to strengthen campus security, as well as organize a forum on the topic at the National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) to raise safety awareness among international students on November 23.
On behalf of TCPD Commissioner Chen, Deputy Commissioner Lu Chun-chang led a delegation consisting of members from the agency’s Foreign Affairs Division, Criminal Investigation Division, Women’s and Children’s Protection Division, Juvenile Affairs Division, Command and Control Center, Public Relations Office, and Daan Police Precinct to attend the event. Deputy Chief Lin Miao-ling from the International Affairs Division of National Police Agency presided over the seminar on personal safety, interacting with international and overseas Chinese students.
Commissioner Chen instructed each police precinct in the city to continue to uphold a safe and secure environment at schools, which has always been an emphasis of the agency. Given international students’ unfamiliarity with local affairs and likely language barriers, more attention and assistance must be devoted to this group. TCPD will continue to work with schools to strengthen on-campus safety while raising safety awareness among these students to ensure that their stay in Taiwan is safe and comfortable.
NTUT Vice President Thomas Yang remarked that the school has inked an agreement on supporting campus safety with TCPD. He expressed his gratitude to Commissioner Chen for dispatching representatives from the various divisions to NTUH for the seminar, which goes a long way to give international students peace of mind.
There is a total of 1,073 foreign students matriculating at NTUT, hailing from 61 countries including Paraguay, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
