New Traffic Police for Kyiv Or Ukrainian Cops are ready for service!

Last weekend, exactly on the July 4, a new  traffic police for Kyiv was presented for Kievans on the Sofievskaya Square.   “They look like American cops. So “Police Academy” moves to Ukraine?” – People on the street were joking, smiling and doing many selfie with the today’s heroes. “Police Academy” movie is very well known in Ukraine

But who are they and what it means to the city and Ukraine?

This is an experiment that was initiated by Ekaterina Zguladze Ukraine’s deputy first minister of internal affairs from January 2015. This is the beginning of the Interior Ministry reform. The goal is to replace corrupt traffic police in Ukraine. And a try was started from Kyiv. You all may know Ukraine’s traffic police don’t have a good reputation… Everybody has heard stories… So eventually it’s time to improve the situation!

Who are Ukrainian police officers?

The new team of the new police officers is Ukrainians ages 21-35, well-educated, good knowledge of the Ukrainian language, with a clear record and driver’s license. Lots of them are girls. They will be well-paid in order to avoid incidents of corruption! They are trained by instructors from the US, Canada and Japan. Their responsibilities and duties are: metro, foot and road patrols working 24 hours a day.

They can:  check documents and inspect, stop cars with explanation of the stop reason; demand leaving a place and to limit access to the territory if it’s necessary for people’s lives protection,  use video and audio; they can use force only after warning; they have to give the first medical treatment if it’s needed.

They cannot: to investigate cases.

Since last weekend 2000 new police officers are patrolling the streets of Kyiv, protecting our calmness.

What it means to Ukraine?

From the Euronews: “By the end of the year, the new force should have been rolled out to five regions of Ukraine. If they get enough funding, the reforms will be complete by the end of 2016

 

New times for Ukraine have been initiated with a great hope and plans. So let it be!
