Song Jeong-ae, a police officer from Jeongeup, Jeollabuk-do, received public attention last year as she became the third woman to become the head of the National Police Agency.



In 1991, she committed herself to the police as a police officer, the lowest rank of the police, and after working as a female youth chief in Chungnam and Dangjin Police Station in South Chungcheong Province, she was promoted to a police officer called a 'police star' in 2018.



Yoon Hee-geun, Director of Security at the National Police Agency, is from Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province. She graduated from the National Police University (7th class), and served as a police officer in the National Police Agency, the chief of the Suseo Police Station in Seoul, and the information management manager in the Seoul Office.



Director Yoon, who is considered a representative informant in the police, has meticulous work handling and communication skills.



Woo Cheol-moon, an investigative planning coordinator of the National Investigation Headquarters of the National Police Agency, from Gimcheon, North Gyeongsang Province, also graduated from the National Police Agency (7th class) and served as the head of the Seocho Police Station in Seoul and the head of the Crime Prevention Policy Division at the National Police Agency.



Director Woo has a strong credibility as a policy leader who took charge of various policies during the transition period of the introduction of the autonomous police body and the establishment of the National Investigation Headquarters.



Ulsan National Police Agency Commissioner Kim Gwang-ho passed the 35th administrative examination and entered the police in 2004 as a special police officer.

Police chief candidate 'water change'

There are seven people in total, including the deputy head of the National Police Agency, the head of the National Investigation Headquarters, the head of the Seoul/Incheon/Gyeonggi Nambu/Busan National Police Agency, and the head of the National Police Academy, the rank immediately below the head of the National Police Agency.



Therefore, today's promotion is the replacement of 5 out of 6 public security officers, except for Nam Gu-jun, the head of the National Investigation Headquarters, whose term of office is left until February next year.



Kim Chang-ryong's term as Commissioner of the National Police Agency expires on July 23.



With two months before Commissioner Kim's retirement, it is an unprecedented change of five out of six candidates for the National Police Agency.



It is expected that the appointment of a promoted public security officer will be made after consultation with the city and provincial autonomous police committees.



In the past, high-ranking police officers were often promoted and appointed at the same time, but after the autonomous police system is implemented, the Commissioner of the National Police Agency must go through a process of recommending them in consultation with the city and provincial autonomous police committees.



The consultation process between the city and provincial autonomous police committees is expected to take about ten days.
