According to activists for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights, violence against LGBT persons with HIV/AIDS was a problem, but instances of police pressure on LGBT-friendly bars and bookstores continued to decrease during the year. The police response to violence against LGBT persons with HIV/AIDS was adequate.
The National Police Administration (NPA) of the Ministry of Interior has administrative jurisdiction over all police units, although city mayors and county magistrates appoint city and county police commissioners. Civilian authorities maintained effective control over the NPA, and the authorities have effective mechanisms to investigate and punish abuse and corruption. There were no reports of impunity involving security forces during the year.

Taiwan turns to a "privacy hell" because prosecutors and police abuse the right/power of retrieval of Taiwanese communication records... Taiwan's police access the most number of Taiwanese communication records (nearly 80% occupied)... Taiwan's total number of retrieval equals more than 200 times the number of records-retrieval in Germany ... Taiwan's prosecutors (or police , investigation units) by themselves approve and issue approval of application for retrieval of communication records, without Taiwan judges' objective approval...... Taiwan's prosecutors and police want it quick and energy-saving, judges want to get rid of burden, so, Taiwan's constitution and Taiwanese human rights are not their (police, prosecutors, etc) concerns eventually?......

Taiwan's Court hard to control abusing of power by prosecutors & police (「法院難管檢警濫權」author: 錢建榮, Taiwan's court judge)
Taiwan's prosecutors and police do wiretapping by using serious crime felony to cover up misdemeanors(重罪掩飾輕罪監聽), Taiwan's judges don't question their evidences/proofs...... the biggest problem is we don't have full-duty prosecutor's order court ( 專責的「強制處分專庭」), judges take turns to do the job, and don't care too much about those application for prosecutor's order... Taiwan's judiciary practice makes no difference between "judge for investigation" and "judge for judgment"... so Taiwan's Judiciary Yuan fails to reach the basic : to evade/side step the issue of dividing applications (「分案迴避」), e.g., those judges during investigation proceedings approve detention of accused, will they think the accused is innocent during judiciary proceedings? .... Taiwan judges fail to reach the goal of professional quality and neutrality ...！wiretapping harms the most Taiwanese privacy, but till now Taiwan fails to send a formal notice to those people being listened... Taiwanese people won't know being listened until they were prosecuted, as for those people not being indicted, they will never know about this .... Taiwanese people can not do anything about this nation's most serious - mandatory punishment, no one can help them, they are rejected by Taiwan's judiciary systems...

Taiwan's Legislature passed wiretap restrictions yesterday, but vice secretary general of the Judicial Reform Foundation expressed that this amendment works nothing for Taiwanese privacy protection in advance and remedy afterwards (該修正案對人民隱私權的事先保障與事後救濟都是空的), Taiwan should learn "four-eyes-principle" (sync. wiretapping by prosecutors and police with judge's approval together with telephone-service staff inside the machinery/equipment room, Chinese namely "同步監聽") of USA or Japan, Taiwan's current way to do it seriously harms Taiwanese privacy.
★ <Apple Daily News> 1.16.2014 editorial
The legislature yesterday approved revisions to the Communication Security and Surveillance Act (通訊保障及監察法) to toughen the rules governing the use of wiretaps... previously, the prosecutors may keep listening someone even the legal case had already been closed, or the prosecutors may wiretap on a specific person and by the way listen other people in the same case... all these show their (prosecutors, police, investigation units) attitude of abusing power & playing the law. This amendments immediately led to a rebound (opposition) by Taiwan's prosecutors, police, and investigation units...The Judicial Reform Foundation expressed : Taiwan's judiciary has not made any progress at all unless they avoid wiretapping mistakes by abolishing the watching center or attaching it to or under certain authority remaining neutral, and not allow accessing communication records unless they got the judges' approval...

◆ Criminal case doc. by Songshan police dept. to Taipei court, prosecutors office(2013.10.25)
◆ Defendant's transcript report(2013.10.19)
Police's report changed suspect's (ps:defendant) words to be:
...(defendant) stated: ... I push her down by a chair... (故以椅子推倒被害人XXX)
Q (police asks): Have you ever held a chair against her chest and attacked her by your fist (用椅子頂被害人胸口，並以拳頭攻擊...)
A (defendant's answer-statement): ...I pull her by my hand... ( 我有用手拉她手臂請她離去...)

All tricky ways Taiwan police leave cases behind (台灣警察吃案手法 大公開)
Former Taiwan vice Prime Minister (行政院副院長葉菊蘭)'s girl-cousin was abused/tortured several days by Taiwan's Mafia/Gang/Mob, this victim twice came to police dept. for help, but receive rejection for reason "personal debt problem"... Taiwan police attitude leads to bad guys' act in foolhardy manner '
Police golden rule for survival is "foolish police don't ignore cases ", because performance evaluation will kill those "foolish" police, inspite of that heads of police reiterated they are strongly against this ...
There're too many tricky ways for police leaving cases behind ... e.g., police may accepts cases like robbery by motorbike, but they won't really access the case, or some police may try all means to persuade victims to ignore their cases, or even give some money by themselves to victims as compensation...
Some police may persuade victims
to just put some case on record
first, and promise do
investigation soon, hence this
case will not be in statistics
report at that day, hence higher
ranking officials won't give
pressure to the police to
investigate the case ...(事後再補辦正式報案手續後，被害人也取得報案三聯單)
As for some cases like Traffic accidents Causing Bodily Harm, police may nicely persuade victims to reach an amicable settlement, or to back home first for a second thought ― if they really want a suit-case in court? ... so that this case may not be in statistics within 3-5 months...
If victims of relatives-missing fail to bring direct evidence of being killed or kidnapped to police, they usually treat this kind of case as people missing, this way caused a female teacher's death by killing.
Most police report cases of stolen motorbike as "license plate missing", if Taiwanese people encounter stealing cases or young kids hand in their cell-phones for bad-guys' threaten behavior, police usually will persuade victims "are you sure it's stolen? or you lost it by yourself?", "you may be accused by serious crime namely "Malicious Accusation"... so these cases won't be listed in police statistics.
Many companies received bad-guy's threaten-letters a lot, most police will promise they will give warnings to bad guys, they definitely don't dare to touch you ....
