Dahua Operates China Police Surveillance

By Charles Rollet, Published Apr 14, 2021, 10:29am EDT (Info+)

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"

Watch this 90-second video for an overview:

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."
