Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday stressed the importance of building a professional and modern police force to fulfill any assigned tasks in the current context.
He made the request while paying a working visit to the Public Security Force Building General Department, saying this was essential to ensure political stability and security.
Major General Tran Ba Thieu, head of the unit, reported on the department's achievements during the development period of over a year, emphasising its recommendations on developing a professional security force for the Central Police Party Committee.
At the meeting, Party General Secretary Trong praised the police for fulfilling their duties to maintain social security and a peaceful environment for national construction and development.
Trong said the police force played a key role in making recommendations to the Party and State to protect the nation's interests and promote socio-economic development. The police force should take initiatives to implement the Party's resolutions, especially the resolution of the fourth plenum of the Party Central Committee, which includes action plans to positively change the force.
He added that the police must keep detecting, preventing and repelling all subversive schemes by hostile forces in order to protect national security in the future.
At the meeting, Trong acknowledged the general department's recommendations, which would be given future consideration./.
