New Commissioner Takes Helm at TCPD

Taipei City Police DepartmentMayor Chiang Wan-an presided over the swear-in ceremony of Taipei’s new police commissioner on January 16. 


The event was attended by Director-general Huang Ming-chao of National Police Agency (NPA), who witnessed the handover of the seal from outgoing commissioner Yang Yuan-ming to the new commissioner Chang Jung-hsing. Chang was formerly the director of the Internal Affairs Office at NPA.


During his address, Chiang began by congratulating the outgoing commissioner for taking on his new position as the principal of Central Police University. He praised Yang for accomplishments including lower numbers in burglary, fraud, and violent crime during his tenure as Taipei’s police chief. He expressed his gratitude to all police officers for working hard to provide residents with a safe environment and wished the outgoing commissioner the best.


The mayor also took the opportunity to welcome the new commissioner onboard. He noted that Commissioner Chang served in various posts across the police force at both municipal and central government levels, including police chief of various precincts under Tainan City Police Department, police commissioner of Hsinchu County Police Department, head of Special Police Sixth Headquarters, and more. 


With Chinese New Year around the corner, the mayor pointed out that Taipei City Police Department will step up its effort to strengthen security during this period. The “Strengthening Security Maintenance during Major Holidays” operation emphasizes three key aspects: security maintenance, smooth traffic, and peace of mind for residents. The city government will continue to place the life and property of citizens as its top priority. 


At the end of his speech, Mayor Chiang thanked Commissioner Yang again for his contributions in making Taipei safer for all. He looks forward to the continuation of outstanding performance by the Police Department under Commissioner Chang.
