South Korea adds 'K-police wave' to national export

Inspired by the global success of its popular culture - K-pop - Korea to export its innovative police programme

    At the police university in the South Korean capital, officers from distant Colombia are being trained in Cybercrime techniques.

    The Korean police has received praise for its professionalism and non-violence in dealing with protests, and it shares expertise with at least 69 other countries.

    The country, inspired by the global success of its popular culture - K-pop - now wants to export its innovative police programme coined as "K-police wave" as part of the national brand.

    But some of the crowd control measures have attracted criticism.
