ABSTRACT

So far, the National Investigation Police has been in charge of criminal investigations, including sexual violence, domestic violence and school violence. If you look at the uniform police model that is currently being pursued, there is a high possibility of confusion in work at front-line security sites, especially in the field of criminal investigation. The above criminal investigation is expected to be transferred to the autonomous police, so laws and regulations must be prepared, and specific measures are also needed for the position and the scope of work and the expected personnel to be transferred. In the early stages of implementation, systematic education is needed so that self-governing investigation police do not interfere with these criminal investigation tasks. Equalization with general administrative officials should be achieved through the adjustment of ranks. Also incentives should be given to ensure the influx of competent police investigators. And it seems necessary to establish a task coordination consultative body involving working-level officials. In addition, the government should use big data such as results of 112 reports to designate specific scope of work and ensure that opinions of working-level officials such as the president are reflected in the enactment of subordinate statutes. As a response to each crimes, for domestic violence we could utilize programs currently operated by each local government, and for school violence we could provide personnel incentives to ensure the influx of existing school police officers. Also we could react to other crimes through business agreements such as preparation of each municipal and provincial education office, police, and schools, and consider introducing a detective system for missing investigations. In addition, by separating the administrative and judicial police, the administrative police can focus on their duties as preventive police officers, such as protecting and supporting victims of crimes, while the autonomous police should be distributed by tasks to enable them as supplementary police activities, and measures should be taken to reduce confusion in their duties through close cooperation between the national police and the local police.
