Inside the PRC (China), Dahua directly operates police video surveillance, significantly different from its Western common perception as a low-cost camera provider. In this post, IPVM investigates these activities, including:
- Dahua's large security guard division patrolling subways and festivals and helping police arrest almost 2,000 'criminals'
- Dahua's CEO personally signing extensive 'cooperation agreements' with PRC police
- Dahua's contract to build and operate Xinjiang police stations
- Dahua guards meeting to "thoroughly study and implement" Secretary-General Xi Jinping's latest speech in order to "improve" their "political judgement"

In response, Dahua called IPVM's reporting "completely false" while "apologizing" and deleting various materials off its website and claiming, without evidence, that its biggest Xinjiang police project had been "cancelled."
