Their responsibilities also include promoting laws and regulations and removing potential fire safety hazards, the notice said.
Their annual salary will be no more than 56,000 yuan (,500).
"This is the third recruitment since July 2017, and we've received about 400 applications," an employee surnamed Cui with a local security service company that recruits staff on behalf of the Chaoyang police, told the Global Times on Wednesday.
The applicants will need to take four rounds of examinations, including a psychological test, Cui said.
