In 2010 the agency started a new public relations program by allowing Hong Kong and Macau media to attend press conferences and adding new spokespersons.[2] All police officers of the Beijing police are armed with a variety of guns on the beat, e.g. QSZ-92, QSW-06, officers in special units carry shotguns and SWAT members are armed with the domestically produced Norinco QBZ-95 Assault Rifle and QSZ-92 Pistols.[citation needed] The bureau is the host of Beijing SWAT, reportedly one of most well trained and best equipped special police (特警 , "Tèjǐng") teams in the entire country.[1]
