So far, all 47 parishes and congregations in the district have achieved all targets of a model on social order and public security developed by the police force. Especially many localities where security situation had been tagged as ‘complicated’ earlier have now become peacefully normal.
In addition, other models for self-management, self-protection, civilized residential areas have also been developed by local authorities and received active response from Catholics in the district, which practically contributed to local security and order.
