The Yangon Region Police Force opened a new office for its media team here Thursday as part of its efforts to improve communication between law enforcement and the press.
The office will disseminate correct information to the people, Pol Col Win Naing, Commander of Yangon Region Police Force, said at the opening ceremony.
Mr Andreas Magnusson, first secretary of the EU Embassy to Myanmar, said the police media team must not be used for propaganda and should provide accurate information to the people.
Plans are under way to open similar offices in the region and state police forces including Nay Pyi Taw Police Force. The office of Yangon Region Police Force is first of its kind among the regions and states.
