In Zhentang Town, Dingkye County, Shigatse, Tibet Autonomous Region, a group of people in navy blue shuttles through the fields of the village all year round, maintaining the safety, harmony, and stability of the area under their jurisdiction. They are the police from the Zhentang Border Police Station of the Shigatse Border Management Division of Tibet Autonomous Region.
At the beginning of its establishment, the villagers did not know much about this new group, and they were a little repelled by them and it was also difficult to carry out the work. Enhancing villagers’ sense of their identity became the police station’s top priority. The police from the station were determined to earning villagers’ trust from small things and practical work.
