The two basic requirements necessary to obtain a work visa are 1, a 4 year or higher degree from an accredited university many "online universities" don't qualify , 2, three or more years experience in a "professional" field.
The number of professional fields is small, and even if being a geek were a profession, there are already millions of geeks here.
This three or more years experience must be consecutive, and verified with tax payments, pay stubs, or employment contracts.
After residing in Japan for 5 consecutive years you are eligible to "apply" for Japanese citizenship. Applying is one thing, having citizenship granted is another.
Anyone remember the British woman Sayuri? And, lastly, why would you want to be a police officer? Especially in Japan? Does a career in giving directions, picking up passed out salarymen, and taking reports for stolen umbrellas sound exciting to you?
Policemen like to pick on foreigners mainly because they have nothing better to do. Police in Japan aren't paid very well relative to what they make in many parts of America.
You would make more money teaching at an English conversation school 25 hours a week. And, never forget that police departments and other bureaucracies are extremely political.
As a foreigner, what do you think the odds would be against your being promoted within the department? Another thing to note.
Even if you get Japanese citizenship and a job as a police officer, you will still be considered a foreigner. And that's what you'll be known as throughout your career, "that foreign policeman".
You should at least consider getting a job where being a foreigner is an asset, and not a liability. I remember the story about that woman. It made some very scathing points about Japan's citizenship set up Simply put, if you actually manage to become a police officer in Japan, it will be a freak'n miracle The system is set up against you, as Japan really doesn't WANT foreign police officers nor see a need for them.
If they did the system would be very different, and so would many others. Very racist if you ask me. Thats exactly what I was talking about, Best to know at least one Japanese person who has your corner.
And just because some other gaijin says "I have never experienced racism, or police, or this or that There are many situations thats why they call it situational ethics where the law and enforcement are applied differently in Japan.
Its kind of like Every gaijin I have met, has had an experience either parallel to mine, or in some cases, much worse. There are some precautions, that I and others have posted, you should know.
Ignore at your own risk. Own your experiences and dont blame yourself, but dont be ignorant of your surroundings.
I was punched in the face by a drunk guy on the train. The police never once treated it like it was anything other than the other guy who was at fault.
Beside ID also riding bicycle as foreigner can be easily end up as a target. Of course so far there is no data that can show correlation between bicycle theft and foreigners.
What usually happened, foreigners just not get used to bicycle registration system since not so many countries have that system.
So lot of foreigners just not taking full details about registration when they get their bicycle from person before them or from buying online even bicycle that they use is perfectly legal.
Firstly, unless the law has changed recently, it is 43 days you can be held without charge. Amnesty International often have their sights on Japan.
Secondly, in my nearly two decades in Japan, mainly in Osaka and Kobe, foreigners can be, and often will be charged in cases Japanese would be let off: foreign crime or even the possiblity of a crime unproven is frequently treated far more sternly, in fact, borderline criminally by the police themselves.
Thirdly, I have had to file complaints against the police twice in my time here for harrassment: no crime committed. Fourthly, the only time I have ever had real trouble with the police, no arrest nor conviction, I was interrogated for 6 hours, and given an awful interpretor who was literally Elementary level English - in downtown Kobe, not the countryside.
The whole process led to a nine month wait to see a prosecutor who literally threw the case out within minutes. The police had nothing, and instead of suing them, I left Japan in disgust.
After your initial arrest by police, you must be placed before a judge within 72 hours, at which point the prosecutor can request an extension of ten days which is rarely rejected.
After that ten days, another ten day extension can be requested again, rarely rejected , bringing it to 23 days. Under extremely rare circumstances, an additional five day extension can be requested, though the police usually just lay a separate charge triggering a new round of 23 days.
What happened is usually they brought multiple charge against you. So every time new charge is being brought the whole process can be reset again.
This only if they brought two charges, if you got more charges mean more days. I have had to file complaints against the police twice in my time here for harrassment: no crime committed.
Interesting Catch in the law is that Japanese themselves are not required to carry any ID, nor to identify themselves to police unless they are under arrest or lawful detention.
So, naturalized foreigners who have obtained Japanese citizenship can just blow the police off by telling them 'I am Japanese'.
In practice, good luck. When stopped for apparently no reason, the best thing to do is be as silent as possible. Don't show too much in the way of Japanese language skills if you have them , or the police will use it against you, speaking ever faster and ever more complicated.
In turn, you need to SHOW not give him yours. Be careful if he tries to snatch it from your hand, you don't want to do anything that can be construed as violent or aggressive.
Minimalist is the way to go without letting your rights be abused. Don't show too much in the way of Japanese language skills if you have them , or the police will use it against you.
Depends on your level of Japanese. I've been able to take care of incidents with the police in a few minutes, that took hours to work out before I was able to speak the language.
Agreed, Nihongo pera pera gaijin is not credible in Japanese society view, and this is not a good strategy. As one of thoshe 'nihongo pera pera gaijin', I assure you that if you speak Japanese well enough, the benefits of being able to communicate and sort out issues with the police FAR outweigh the hassles of pretending you cannot communicate with them.
In fact, the only people I find making the claim that it's better to not speak Japanese, are those who don't speak it well. I've never known anyone who had proper Japanese fluency and I know a lot of these people who said it was better for those fluent in Japanese to pretend they cannot speak it at such times.
I don't mind being stopped by a friendly police officer, but once I was with my friend and 2 guys came up wearing black windbreakers.
I suspected they were undercover police and sure enough, after passing by once they turned around and showed their badges.
They then started asking my friend about his bike and eventually called it in to see if it was registered. Not sure if they singled him out and not me due to him not being white, but the whole situation was very weird because they were staring at us in their disguises instead of coming right up and asking to check the registration.
I can understand where pera pera would help as opposed to not knowing any Japanese at all. If you dont know any Japanese get ready for fun and games, your at the mercy of the wolves.
The problem with pera pera gaijin is they can just keep doing the circle jerk logic of "but he said" until you submit.
A third party, with your interest at stake, can circumvent the loop logic and save your day. A lot is simply to do with politeness to authority.
I was in the benefit office welfare office in London about 6 months ago where it kicked off over nothing. When you enter, you're told to find a seat and sit down.
It's for safety reasons, so you don't suddenly attack the staff. So, I walk in and the security guard a low paid bloke in a black suit is a bit abrupt with me.
He tells me to sit down a bit rudely. Let's say his customer service could've been better, but I'm like 'sure, no problem sir'. A guy in his mid 20s walks in, doesn't like the 'attitude' and suddenly a big argument kicks off.
Everyone in the benefit office stops what they're doing and is just staring at him being restrained on the floor. What happens?
What a plank. All he had to do was say 'sure! If only that were true. I have a lot of friends and colleagues as well as myself who have experienced total disrespect from the police as soon as they knew you were a foreigner, or simply looked at you: cognitive bias Once again, I'm speaking as a 'pera pera gaijin', and I would say the "circle jerk logic" you speak of is going to be dependent on the person, and their understanding of Japan.
Anyone who speaks Japanese and understands that the police are more interested in getting rid of problems, rather than sorting out whose fault it is, is not going to get hung up on "but he said".
I've never been stopped once since moving here in the mid 's, lived in Roppongi 25 years no problems. Only when I was victimized assaulted in did ugliness rear its head.
Meguro police sheltered the perp, destroyed evidence, lied in report, etc. I learned a victim has little recourse if police decide to screw you.
One cannot sue them directly, can only sue the NPA which is the government. US Embassy told me they cannot intervene in private cases. I showed them awards I received in Vietnam, no matter.
Go figure. This seems more like it's aimed at football fans rather than rugby fans. Rugby fans in the UK are, by and large, well-behaved.
A fair number of Scots fans like to party and wear kilts with no drawers underneath I've been visiting Japan fairly regularly for the last 13 years and I've only ever been stopped once, at the Narita railway station waiting for the Skyliner to Tokyo.
Asked for my passport, asked some questions and saluted. Hopefully if rugby fans are stopped they won't go into 'chip on the shoulder' mode and start arguing.
OK, seriously though if the cops stop you, keep calm, show them your ID you should always have some form of ID on you , answer their questions and you should be OK.
I make it a point to know policemen in my neighborhood Meguro. They know I did commo for Interpol in Cambodia, we talk daily in passing, no probs, but when a Japanese assaulted me all that goodwill went out the window - it was me against them.
Former veteran police officer Akio Kuroki retired and became anti police corruption journalist. He told me the entire NPA is filthy corrupt can never be corrected until it's dismantled and rebuilt from scratch.
He spent all his money protesting against the police, when he was found dead in his car in a suspicious suicide the police cheered. Respected journalist Yu Teresawa has been protesting exposing corrupt police and officials his entire career, had a few demoted and fired.
He agrees. There are others out there if you do the research. It's a shame no one trusts the police. I once did but never again. Experienced something similar.
Unitl it happens to you, then there isnt much empathy, so I never count on receiving it. Had a hit and run done on me, guy was found, not arrested, kind of bizzare thing We do appreciate our embassy staff, however, especially our ambassador, when she does videos dancing about Japan.
I dont count on anybody after that experience. Cooperation and understanding go a long way in Japan with the police.
They are only doing the job, that's it nothing more. However I disagree with this comment in the article: "But differences in culture and behavior exist.
I have visited numerous countries and yet to be in one where its normal to behave as such implied. Just yesterday I was in Aomori pref and witnessed a Japanese national pop out his business and relieve himself in the side of the road and moments later another one behind a shed but where ongoing traffic could be witness.
A police car passed by but did nothing. To my understanding, that is illegal,. I see it daily however. Its one of those, oyaji hierarchy things, like a relic from the past, that they overlook, because the old man has allot of clout in Japan.
Difficult to explain, but you will know it if you stay in Japan. Its kind of a shouganai thing. As a gaijin, though, dont ever even think of doing it.
Its a barbaric thing to do anyway, I have seen them do it, and then the next day, old ladies mending the same plants he peed in.
State responsibility for maintaining public order has been clarified to include coordination of national and local efforts; centralization of police information, communications, and record keeping facilities; and national standards for training, uniforms, pay, rank, and promotion.
Rural and municipal forces were abolished and integrated into prefectural forces, which handled basic police matters.
Officials and inspectors in various ministries and agencies continue to exercise special police functions assigned to them in the Police Law.
According to statistics of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime , among the member states of the UN, and among the countries reporting statistics of criminal and criminal justice, the incidence rate of violent crimes such as murder, abduction, rape and robbery is very low in Japan.
The incarceration rate is very low and Japan ranks out of countries. It has an incarceration rate of 41 per , people. In the prison population was 51, and Japan has a very low rate of intentional homicide victims.
It has a rate of just 0. There were in The number of firearm related deaths is low. The firearm-related death rate was 0.
There's a gun ownership of 0. The intentional death rate is low for homicides with 0. However, the suicide rate is relatively high with Prefectural Police Departments are established for each Prefectures and have full responsibility for regular police duties for their area of responsibility.
These Prefectural Police Departments are primarily municipal police with their own police authority , but their activities are coordinated by National Police Agency and National Public Safety Commission.
As of , the NPA has a strength of approximately 7, personnel: 2, sworn officers , guards and 4, civilian staff. But after the surrender of Japan , the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers regarded this centralized police system as undemocratic.
During the Occupation , the principle of decentralization was introduced by the Police Law. But most Japanese municipalities were too small to have a large police force, so sometimes they were unable to deal with large-scale violence.
In addition, excessive fragmentation of the police organization reduced the efficiency of police activities.
As a response to these problems, complete restructuring created a more centralized system under the amended Police Law.
Those who became a doshin in the early Edo period were specially called "fudai" hereditary vassal , and even if they lost their official titles, they were still entitled to receive salary and could leave this to their descendants.
Doshin of the bakufu were not hatamoto direct retainers of the bakufu but bakushin shogun's retainers , which were in the gokenin shogunal retainers class, and upper ranked doshin received an eighty-koku crop salary and a ration for five persons, which means they substantially had a hundred-koku income approximately.
Their salary was equivalent to that of a senior vassal of a feudal lord who had ten thousands- koku crop yields. Yoriki police sergeant under the control of the town magistrate and many of doshin were given their residence which was like modern police quarters in Hatchobori Chuo Ward, Tokyo Prefecture , which was often used as a byword for doshin.
In addition, a residence given to a yoriki was about square meters and a residence given to a doshin was about square meters.
Since their job was disliked as it was so-called a dirty job, they formally employed a new person when his predecessor left his office although it was substantially hereditary.
Lower ranked doshin such as prison patrol doshin just received a ration for five persons, but in reality they had real handsome income as they received bribes from territorial lords and merchants, so they could afford to hire some private servants such as okappiki and meakashi thief-takers.
Hitsuke-Tozoku-Aratame-Kata literally, "investigative division for arson and organized robbery The Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame-kata post was for mostly cracking down such felonies as arson, robbers burglars and gambling.
Originally, with this post being a temporary one, the officers in this post were selected from Osakitegumigashira and Mochigumigashira, both of which belonged to the standing army of the bakufu.
After the conflagration in the Meireki era - , many arsonists and burglars appeared in Edo. Therefore, the bakufu established the "Tozokuaratame" post as the one dedicated for cracking down these serious crimes in After that, the "Hitsukearatame" post was established in Nakayama Kageyu, who was feared as a "Oni-kageyu" fiendish kageyu is known as the head of Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame-kata officers.
In , the Tozokuarateme post and the Hituskearatame post were abolished, and the jobs came to be covered by three Bugyo posts Jishabugyo for handling shrine and temple affairs , Kanjobugyo for handling financial affairs , and Machibugyo for handling townspeople's affairs.
However, in when the incident of raiding Kira's residence occurred, the Tozokuaratame post was restored, and the Bakuuchiaratame post for cracking down gambling was newly established.
In the next year, the Hitsukearatame post was restored. In , the Tozokuarateme post and the Hituskearatame post were integrated into the "Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame" post, with the post assumed by Sente-gashira the head of sentegumi a group of persons guarding Edo additionally.
However, this post became independent of Sente-gashira in The jobs of the Bakuuchiaratame post were transferred to the town magistrate post, in the year when the "Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame" post was introduced.
With no specific office provided, the residence of Sentegumi-gashira, for example, was used as the office. The organization of the sente-gumi consisting of five to ten Yoriki officers assistants and 30 to 50 Doshin offices placed under Yoriki was used as it was.
However, persons having lots of experience in the cracking-down operations sometimes remained in the post even after the head of the Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame" post changed.
Meakashi persons hired temporarily were also used as in the town magistrate's office. The Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame-kata post was provided with the right to investigate crimes, such as theft, burglary, and arson, but with almost no jurisdiction.
Therefore, when making a judgment for a suspect who should have been administered to a punishment above the Tataki punishment basically, beating , the matter had to be submitted for the judgment of Roju the second-highest post in the bakufu government.
The Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame-kata officers belonged to the bankata guardians , who were military officers, and therefore, their cracking-down operations were relentless and were feared by the general public.
It is recorded that they were disliked by the officers at the town magistrate offices who were engaged in investigations of crimes.
Perhaps due to such a situation, villain's roles were often assigned to them, for example, in historical dramas. The town magistrate officers belonged to the Yaku-gata group consisted of civil officers, and the Hitsuke-tozoku-aratame-kata officers belonged to the Ban-gata group consisted of military officers.
One reason for this situation was that "robbers" in the early Edo period were mostly groups of armed robbers, and when they resisted, the town magistrate officers, being unarmed, could not control them although provided with a sword as a samurai, doshin officers in the town magistrate used to capture criminals alive with jitte short one hook truncheon and ladders, without using the sword.
In addition, criminals often set fire on the building after committing a crime in it to disrupt the investigation.Hi there. Police take special note of names of the aged or those living alone who might need special Casinoaction in an emergency. It's not work to me. Not that I want to discourage you, but to take the above exam, you'll need to be proficient in Japanese language so that you can understand the webpage above quoted But most Japanese municipalities were too small to have a large police force, so sometimes they were unable to deal with large-scale violence. There have been fake cops too! Some Flip Und Flap countries have laws similar to Japan. Beside ID also Wo Liegt Macau bicycle as foreigner can be easily end up as Japanese Police target. I didn't have a current passport for a number of years because it had elapsed and I hadn't replaced it. The members in this post, together with those in the other two bugyo posts were also members of Hyojosho the conference chamberand were also concerned with affairs in the bakufu government.
