Chinese War Training Personnel


As I was walking around and trying to get some photos at Tiananmen Square I, being a foreigner, was stopped by every security guard, policeman, volunteer security, and any other random security person. Obviously I don’t look asian and when they saw me coming I would get my documents ready because they were going to be asking for it. When they were checking my documents I saw this person with War Training on his back so I took a photo. Does the war training mean he is a military personnel or is he specially trained for specific situations? It certainly gave me pause because during this time of COVID and China has the country locked down where there aren’t many foreigners in the country at all, why is security for this specific tourist location so tight and only tight for foreigners. Security wasn’t tight at all for anyone who looked asian.
