Maternal and child safety has been a universal value, as well as a representation of human rights and the hopes of the country. In order to integrate and expand the maternal and child protection resources, the government reengineered its organization in 2003. The former Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention Committee of the Ministry of the Interior has been transferred to the Department of Protective Services of the Ministry of Health and Welfare since July 23, 2003. For enquiries about the relevant transferred services (including domestic violence prevention, sexual assault prevention, sexual harassment prevention, child and adolescent protection, child and juvenile sexual exploitation prevention, etc.), please call (02) 8590-6666 or check the website
Protecting women and children from harm is a key task in public security. In order to strengthen the energy of mobilization about police administration for women and children, we have established the Crime Prevention Division since January 1, 2014. Besides, we set the affiliated unit, called women and children security section, to promote the nationwide security work for women and children. The section also implements all kinds of women and children protection work, which focus on the crime prevention and protection of victims. If you have any questions about the police duties and services of maternal and child safety, you can contact the Agency at (02) 2321-9011 or the local police station.
