Public Safety Administration 2

Second Republic
 
(1) Organizational Changes
The Second Republic retained much of the police organization of the First Republic, except for reducing the scope of the Special Investigation Division’s tasks from policing politics, culture, and foreigner affairs to policing foreigner affairs only, and also from the investigation of special criminals and general surveillance to the investigation of special criminals only. The scope of police surveillance, however, was broadened to include counter-communism activities, thus reinforcing police control over social stability and order.
