The Yanbian Korean autonomous prefecture in Northeast China's Jilin province has established a military-civilian defense system for better border security, China Defense News reported on Wednesday, following a recent incident.

Yanbian, which shares more than 500 kilometers of border with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and 246 km with Russia, now has its police department working with border guards at checkpoints on critical roads to question passers-by.

Civilian patrols have been started in border villages and counties, and every 10 neighboring households have their own border security group. If one household reports anything suspicious, all 10 will respond and report back to the village head.
