  Beijing's first professional campus security team made its debut on Saturday, and the team of over 200 will begin working in schools and kindergartens of Xicheng District on September 1, the Beijing News reports.

  The team was formed following a series of recent school attacks in China's Fujian, Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shandong Provinces.

  Wang Hui, an official with the public security bureau of Xicheng District, said the team members are in their early 30s on average. They were selected from more than 600 local residents and were trained by the police.

  The security team is equipped with police batons, aerosol spray cans and steel forks. Their duties include standing guard at school gates, patrolling inside schools, and detecting and timely stopping school violence, all of which are aimed at ensuring the safety of students at schools or kindergartens.

  The official said the professional security team is different from traditional security guards with most of the members holding advanced academic degrees, including college degrees or bachelor's degrees.

  Moreover, the monthly income is more than 1,800 yuan (about 265 US dollars), about 20 percent higher than traditional security guards, and that will keep the stability of the team.

  According to Wang Hui, more security teams will join in later and they will gradually replace all the present security guards in schools and kindergartens in the district.
