The plan aims to cut the amount of violations caused by teenagers and child abuse cases by 15 – 20% and 5 – 7%, respectively, during the period.

It also expects to ensure at least 50% of residential, business and school areas meet safety and security standards.

Measures to achieve these goals include improving state security management and coordination across government agencies. 

The plan prioritises the rehabilitation of inmates as well as combating crimes, such as drug and human trafficking, business and food safety violations, and cybercrime.
