About 361 Chinese public security officers died in public service due to overwork in 2017 the Chinese Ministry of Public Security said on Thursday.

It said that research showed that the front-line policemen work 13 to 15 hours a day, which made overwork a major concern in China.

The ministry also said that the average age of the deceased officers was 43.5, half of the average lifespan in China.

The ministry, however, said it had increased pensions to officers’ families and improved insurance system.
