“Japanese Police Reform, 1952-54”
Histoshi KOMIYA, Associate Professor, College of Literature, Aoyama Gakuin University
Lunch will be served.

This presentation examines Japanese police reform from 1952 to 1954.  Following independence in 1952, the Japanese government reformed the police system introduced during the Allied Occupation. Today’s system derives from this reform.  This talk explains the unique amendment draft of 1953 and its transformation after only one year.
