Gong'an County (simplified Chinese: 公安; traditional Chinese: 公安; pinyin: Gōng'ān Xiàn) is a county in southern Hubei province, People's Republic of China, bordering Hunan to the south. It is under the administration of Jingzhou City.

History

In April 2009, the county drew nationwide ridicule after media reported that Gong'an officials had ordered civil servants and employees of state-owned companies to buy a total of 23,000 packs / year of a Hubei brand of cigarette. Departments whose employees failed to buy enough or who bought other brands would be fined.

The officials were undaunted, saying that the increased revenue from the cigarette tax would buoy the local economy. After several weeks of embarrassment, they relented, posting a short message on their government Web site:

  • "We have decided to remove this edict."[2]

Administrative divisions

The county oversees 14 towns (镇) and two townships (乡) as of 2016. Altogether 59 neighbourhood committees (居委会), 321 village committees (村委会) and 3,337 village groups come under the county's jurisdiction.[1][3][4] The new county seat for executive, legislative and judiciary and for the CPC and PSB branches, is Douhudi.
