With the global economy struggling, many of the world’s biggest countries are struggling to find ways to keep their workers safe from crime.
And in the case of China, it’s the opposite.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, China is the world top exporter of migrants to the U.S. in terms of numbers, and it’s also the world leader in the murder rate.
With an average of 1,300 people murdered per day, China ranks as the world capital of organized crime.
“It’s very difficult to get people to do their job in a safe environment, which is why it’s very, very difficult for us to do the things that we need to do,” said Paul Seng, an executive director of the UCC.
“We need to take steps to prevent the kinds of things that are happening.”
But it’s not just a matter of keeping people safe.
“They’ve got to be aware that these things can be very violent,” Seng said.
And the UUC also needs to be better at tracking where those who work in the field are being murdered.
“The violence that’s happening in our communities is just going to continue to get worse,” he said.
“This is not going to stop.”
A few years ago, there were no data on how many people were murdered by gangs or gangs of “lone wolves,” the group of people who kill and rob people without a gang affiliation.
But since then, there’s been a surge in attacks on police, which have been increasingly targeted in the wake of the unrest in the country.
And since 2010, there have been more than 1,000 killings by gangs in China, according to a report by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
This is not the first time that the ULC has come under fire for its efforts to fight crime in China.
In 2014, the UEC was forced to resign after the UPC announced that it was pulling out of the country in protest of a law that required it to conduct background checks on all employees.
(The law was later rescinded.)
But the UCAI’s Seng argues that the agency’s success in combating crime in the UOC is due to its work in creating the framework for a “culture of safety” that will prevent these types of violence from taking place in the future.
“If we can create a culture where people feel safe in their workplace, that’s a lot better than in the past, where people felt like they had to wear masks, where there were these very, many police officers in the workplace,” Sorg said.
While Seng believes that the law that was passed by the People’s Republic of China in 2010 is the main reason why crime is at a low level in China right now, he says that it’s actually the UIC’s work to enforce it that’s the biggest problem.
“You have to go out and enforce it, but we have to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to prevent it from happening,” he added.
