PPSUC is involved in the development of technological tools for public security applications, including image recognition. For instance, the university signed an agreement with Chinese video surveillance equipment manufacturer Hikvision in 2016 to set up a joint laboratory on video image recognition technology. In 2018, it signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Xiamen Meiya Pico Information Co., a Chinese company that provides digital forensics and information security products, which included upgrading a forensics laboratory and establishing a cyber security attack and defence laboratory.

The university also has cooperation agreements with numerous local government-level public security bureaus across the PRC. These include agreements on image recognition technology for local public security bureaus and joint laboratories. For instance, in 2018 alongside the Nanshan sub-bureau of Shenzhen Public Security Bureau and the artificial intelligence companies SenseTime and Shenzhen Yuantian Lifei, it signed a strategic cooperation agreement on applying video recognition and the establishment of a joint laboratory.
