1.Forest public security

Forest public security is an important armed force to protect forest and wildlife and plants resources and ecological safety, to ensure social order in the forest zones, and concurrently shoulder the functions of criminal and administrative law enforcement. It was founded in 1948. In May 1984, upon approval by the State Council, forest public security was officially incorporated into the rank of the state public security organ. The Ministry of Forestry has the public security bureau, which was on the rank of the Ministry of Public Security and was called the No 16 bureau of the Ministry of Public Security. Local forest public security was on the rank of local public security organs, and was under the dual leadership from the competent forestry authorities and public security organs. In 1998, the newly amended Forestry Law states that the forest public security is responsible for maintaining social order, protecting forest resources, and upon authorization by competent forestry authorities under the State Council, exercising the power of administrative punishment in relation to forestry. In 1998, the State Forestry Administration issued an order, officially authorizing the forest public security to exercise the power of administrative punishment in relation to forestry. In the same year, amid the institutional reforms of the State Council, the Forestry Public Security Bureau of the Ministry of Forestry and Forest Fire Prevention Office were merged, and it was renamed as the Forest Public Security Bureau of the State Forestry Administration. In 2003, the State Forestry Administration and the Ministry of Public Security jointly issued an order on strengthening the construction of forest public security forces. The order further clarified the roles of forest public security, reiterated the dual leadership system for the forest public security, and made arrangements for strengthening the construction of forest public security forces. This marked a new and important era for the development of forest public security forces.
