NHK reported this morning that a GOJ taskforce headed by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga has drafted measures to ensure the safety of Okinawa residents following the latest incident in Okinawa involving a U.S. civilian base worker. According to the network, the measures include increasing the number of police cars and police officers stationed at police boxes and enhancing patrols in entertainment districts by establishing a patrol unit of retired police officers. Under the new measures, the GOJ will provide subsidies to local municipalities to install security cameras and crime prevention lamps, and establish a new consultative body where the GOJ and local municipalities can exchange views on crime prevention measures. The new measures will be formally decided at a meeting at the Kantei today.
