“Safety from the start line to the finish line”

“We will do our best to ensure that the event remains a festival that promotes the health of participants and the friendship of the community,” Park Jong-min (pictured), chief of the Gongju Police Department in Chungcheongnam-do, told the Donga Ilbo on Thursday.

The police organized special traffic management measures ahead of the marathon. Sixty-six police officers, including the Gongju Police Station and its support squad, and 95 volunteers, including model drivers, Jeon Eui-kyung, the Voluntary Neighborhood Watch, and the Marine Corps Warriors Association, will be deployed to 77 locations along the marathon course. “In particular, we will concentrate personnel at major intersections such as Jeonmak Intersection and Oin Intersection to ensure safety,” Park said.

The police will sequentially control the marathon course from Baekje Kegil to Uydang-myeon Oin Intersection from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the 17th, the day of the race. “We have prepared thorough traffic management measures so that all marathon participants from all over the country can safely cross the finish line,” said Chief Park. “I hope you can enjoy Gongju, where 1500 years of history and brilliant cultural heritage are alive through the Gongju Baekje Marathon.”스포츠토토

Chief Park, who was appointed at the end of July, also expressed his determination to “become a Gongju police officer who is faithful to the basics.” “The ‘basics and principles’ are the values that every police officer deserves,” he said, adding, “I will perform my duties fairly, consistently, and neutrally in accordance with the law and principles, and proudly stand by the side of citizens.”
