Taipei mayor promises to increase MRT police force (2014/05/22)

While there was a visible police presence on the MRT today, typically it’s rare to see an officer during a trip on the metro. Today Taipei Mayor Hau Lung-bin promised to increase the MRT police force to better protect passengers. 

After a comprehensive assessment last night, Mayor Hau gave more details on police deployment at MRT stations.

Hau Lung-bin
Taipei Mayor
A total of two units and 80 special police officers dispatched by the central government will remain for two weeks. Our precincts in Taipei and New Taipei will be responsible for maintaining safety at all MRT stations.

Today, more than 400 officers from the two municipalities and the National Police Agency were stationed at MRT stations.

That was an average of four police officers assigned to each MRT station. But this is only a short-term measure and more will need to be done in the future.

Hou You-yi
New Taipei Deputy Mayor
Current MRT police deployment is inadequate.

Yesterday, more than 10 minutes passed between passengers activating the on-train emergency alert system and the arrival of MRT police.

Lin Shih-tsung
DPP Taipei City Councilor
How can it be that after that many people died and that many people were hurt, once the train reached the station and the doors opened, there wasn’t a single MRT police officer?

The MRT network has 143 police officers for its 109 stations. Apart from Taipei Main Station where a unit is stationed, the rest of the stations only have roaming patrols. One officer must patrol up to 12 stations a day. The mayor has pledged to strengthen forces.

捷運警不夠

捷運史上頭一遭喋血殺人事件,維安亮起紅燈,外界檢討聲四起!目前台北捷運警察隊,只有143名員警,平均1名員警,每天面對1.2萬名乘客。台北市長郝龍斌上午親自召開記者會,表示現階段會先以支援警力應付,也承諾將擴編捷運警察隊。

經過一夜的全盤檢討,郝龍斌一早宣布最新捷運警力的配置狀況。

“中央派的保安警察,為期是兩個禮拜,總共是2個分隊 80位員警,我們相關的分局,台北市跟新北市都一樣,會負起整個捷運車站,安全的維護工作”

雙北市轄區員警加上警政署的支援人力,目前捷運全線已經有439名警力投入維安工作。

強化後的捷運警力,現在一個車站,就有四名員警,但是這畢竟不是長久之計,捷運警力不足的問題,得從根本解決。

[[新北市副市長 侯友宜 ]]
“捷運警察隊的警力,以目前的狀況,事實上是不足的”

回顧昨天事發經過,從車廂內乘客按下求救鈴開始到支援警員在月台逮捕嫌犯,全程將近11分鐘後,捷運警察才出現。

[[台北市議員(民) 林世宗]]
“為什麼到站以後,死了那麼多人,傷了那麼多人,竟然車門一打開,竟然沒有看到任何一個捷運警察”

目前捷運有109個車站,捷運警察隊編制了143名員警,除了台北車站有駐地捷運警察,其它車站以路線劃分巡邏區域,最多一人一天要巡邏12個站。郝龍斌承諾將擴編捷運警察隊。
