"... owner Frank Pécol told us that he is in France on a previously planned trip."
What a convenience coincidence!! He so happened to leave the very next day the police raid and detained his senior people. He has still not returned to China. Shanghai police has also issued a public statement requiring his return.
What a coward Pécol is by taking the first life raft when his ship (and people) sinks.

The information in this article is quite misleading, and the headline is outright false. You're confusing Work Permits (from the Labor Bureau) with Residence Permits (from the Public Security Bureau, which is under the MPS). To be clear, the MPS has no authority over Work Permits. What the announcement does say is that the MPS can now issue 5 year work category Residence Permits 有效期5年以内的工作累居留许可.
BUT, it would be unwise to assume any foreigner could walk into the PSB and apply for one of these though. You'd need to be approved for a 5 year Work Permit before you could apply for the Residence Permit. Since the Labor Bureau doesn't often give 5 year Work Permits, the average foreigner will not likely be able to apply for the 5 year work category Residence Permit.

@Jacob_Sar and @christycai: They haven't listed which specific cities (other than Beijing, Tianjin and Chongqing), but it looks like Guangdong province is not included in the pilot.
