The police bureau of Jingjiang city, East China's Jiangsu province, has specially set up a ballroom in its office building to meet the demand of some police officers who like singing and dancing, the Yangzi Evening News reported Friday.

This move was included in the three solemn regulations announced by the bureau's head on July 13. According to the three regulations, police are strictly prohibited from going to public entertainment venues for karaoke, having massages in private rooms at bathhouses and playing card games in the workplace.

However, the police bureau has shown it appreciates its staff need to relax, and it is allowing them to have massages in view of the public at bathhouses and has opened a ballroom in its office building for karaoke and dancing.
