A NPA Chief Director with a global mindset

Chen Guo-En, the new director general of the National Police Agency of the Ministry of the Interior, has a well-rounded resume in the field. However, he is not a typical director general who has a perfect background. In the past, not only did he set up a Facebook page as a channel for the street level policemen to voice their complaints, but he also went to law enforcement trainings in several countries. The perfect resume Ever since Chen graduated from Central Police University with a PHD in the department of criminology, he devoted himself to the field of law enforcement. He worked as deputy chief officer at the Kaohsiung City Police Department of Yancheng precinct, and Taipei City Police Department of Songshan, Wanhua, and Zhongshan precinct. Afterwards, he was promoted to the director general of Chiayi City Police Bureau and Taichung City Police Bureau. Chen later took the position of Secretary General and Director at the Public Relation office of the National Police Agency of the Ministry of the Interior. He was in charge of many events that advocate for the police’s public image. During his term as the director general of Chiayi City Police Bureau and Taichung City Police Bureau, he received many awards from the government for his leadership and efficacy in decreasing the crime rate of the cities. When Chen was the chief general officer of New Taipei City Police Bureau, New Taipei City was rated as the top city in the crime fighting section of Global Views Monthly’s survey of “the competitiveness of the cities”. In additions to the impressive outcomes of his leadership, Chen is a chief who wants to be in contact with the global trends. Enthusiastic in global exchange During the interview, Chen said the need for international cooperation among police is an upward trend. As the world globalizes, there are more transnational internet crimes. Due to the sensitive diplomatic situation of Taiwan, the international police partnership is deeply hindered by the diplomatic isolation. In order to combat the Taiwan’s difficult international situation, the law enforcement has to use an innovative and mutual beneficial way to cooperate with the international police force; in turns, it will help our police to gain international visions and influences. Over the past few years, Chen strengthened the friendship and collaboration by inviting many important international police organizations and law enforcement leaders to visit Taiwan. Moreover, he encouraged police officers to attend training in the United States to broaden their horizons
