Yang to Replace the Retiring Chen as Taipei City Police Commissioner 北市警察局長陳嘉昌退休 楊源明接任

Taipei City Police Commissioner Chen Chia-chang officially retired on July 16. He will be succeeded by former Taichung City Police Commissioner Yang Yuan-ming.


In April, Taipei's Songshan Precinct was vandalized by a group of men wearing black. Reports of a police coverup immediately began spreading. Before this scandal abated, an abuse-of-power scandal erupted in Beitou, followed by the restaurant cockroach incident. On July 16, Taipei City Commissioner Chen Chia-chang retired.

Yang Yuan-ming ,New Taipei City Police Commissioner:”It's not just this investigation. We have to fully investigate all leads, from network to members to cash flow to cash source in order to thoroughly root these things out.”

Chen's successor is Yang Yuan-ming, who says he will focus his attention on disease prevention, social order and crime-fighting. A graduate of Central Police Agency, Yang served four years as Taichung City police commissioner. He also has close to two decades of experience in Taipei, including stints as Wenshan First Precinct chief and Criminal Investigation Division chief. 

According to reports, Yang was not Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je's top choice for the post.

Ko Wen-je, Taipei City Mayor:”Police, personnel, accounting and politics are all part of the same whip.  We all respect the system that this whip represents, so we didn't have any specific person in mind (for the post).”

Ko says Chen was able to close every single major case during his tenure in Taipei and Yang's top priorities at his new post will be social order, transportation and serving the people.

 

 

台北市松山警分局,今年4月,遭到黑衣人闖入,砸毀警用電腦,引發軒然大波,北市警察局長陳嘉昌,多次親上火線、召開記者會;緊接著,卻又接連發生北投趙介祐特權風波,和中山區餐廳潑蟑螂等治安事件,打擊警界士氣,如今,他在16號屆齡退休,而接替的人是他。

新任台北市警局長 楊源明:「我想不只個案的偵辦,對這些溯源追查,後面的這些犯罪的網絡跟成員以及他的金流、金源,都必須做徹底的追查,才能夠徹底來根除。」

接過印信,楊源明完成交接、成為新任北市警局長,走馬上任第一天,表示會兼顧防疫和治安,持續打擊犯罪,楊源明是警大47期畢業、擔任台中市警察局長近4年,也曾經在台北服務將近20年,出任過文山一警分局分局長、刑警大隊大隊長。只是,先前卻傳出,他不是市長柯文哲的矚意人選。

台北市長 柯文哲:「警政、人事、主計,跟這個政風是一條鞭,所以原則上我們都尊重這個一條鞭的系統,所以我們也沒有特別一定要什麼樣的人選。」

柯文哲指出,陳嘉昌任內台北重大案件百分百破案;接下來,楊源明接任,最重要的就是要把治安、交通以及為民服務,三件事都做到位。
