China has set up a special office to guide public security checks -- especially in areas found with major security problems.

The information was revealed Thursday at a meeting held by the Central Committee for Comprehensive Management of Public Security, the organizer of the office.

While the office consists of personnel from about 14 central Party and governmental organizations, its daily work will be conducted by the committee and the Ministry of Public Security.

The office's main functions include researching on patterns of criminal activities, directing crackdown campaigns in key areas and punishing violators.

Other functions include coordinating various organizations and supervise security check work among others.

According to the committee, detailed measures are being mapped out on the assessment of the security check work.

On Tuesday, the country's minister of public security Meng Jianzhu reaffirmed the need to continue cracking down on robberies, burglaries, swindling, prostitution, underground forces, and human and drug trafficking.

Meng voiced security concerns for certain areas, such as urban-rural intersection areas and "villages in the city," a term for poor residential areas within cities.
