Considering the rapid and massive disappearance of police heritage, the Guanshan Police Precinct has set up the office used in the Japanese Colonial Period near the courtyard of the precinct to be the Police Heritage Centre to preserve police relics such as early literature and historical materials donated by employees at the precinct. The centre is mainly divided into sections to demonstrate all police heritage utilized by policemen in the past – a uniform section, crime investigation equipment section, safety and security equipment section, communication equipment section, stationery section, transportation equipment section, vehicle section and so on.Mr. Qingyuan Xu, former mayor of Taitung County, visited the Guanshan Police Precinct on June 14th, 2004. During his visit, he was very excited to see the nostalgic telephone set with a rocking handle and pointed out that that was the same model he used during his term at the Dawu Township Office about 20 years ago. Amazed by the settings at the tea tasting section, coffee tasting section, cow-drawn carriage and rice mill, Mr. Xu applauded the effort that the precinct has put into decorating the building that felt very much like a rural village that has truly been blended into the local environment and emphasized local features. Mr. Xu pointed out the design of the precinct building is full of tourism values that change the typical unapproachable feelings that most people have about a Yamen (police department). Thus, Mr. Xu has donated about NTD$800000 to renovate the Police Heritage Centre. The renovation project spent about two months and was complete in January 2005. The renovation has further enhanced the tourism value for the centre and can more effectively preserve all heritages and historical relics.
