Where Are Chinese Internet Police Being Trained? This inetcop.com.cn website has the answer.
The following is from the Xiamen Meiah Pico IT CO., Ltd. website, translated by CDT’s Lucy Lin:
On July 30, 2004, the Ministry of Public Security formally passed and authorized the establishment of a “National Internet Police Training Program,” which would rely on the company’s technological skills, educational resources, and experimental environment to provide training and related services in the field of Internet supervision for the Department of Secure Internet Public Information to the Ministry of Public Security.
Up to December 2005, the training bases not only completed more than a dozen national skill-based training assignments, they have also set up 70 extra beginning, intermediate, and advanced training classes relating to the monitoring of Internet security and investigation of computers for certification. This has provided skill-based training for the more than 3,000 policemen at the Ministry of Public Security. Furthermore, in November 2005, the Ministry of Public Security for the first time undertook a foreign aid project and effectively completed its assignment to provide training on the investigation of computers for certification to the Bangladesh police. This was its first step in internationalizing these training programs.
