Reforming law enforcement bodies and special agencies
Reforming law enforcement bodies and special agenciesWe should continue reforming the law enforcement bodies and specialagencies. Without this we will not reach our aim to create “zero tolerance”towards disorder and the eradication of corruption.(1)In the recent three years a number of important reforms of the lawenforcement bodies and special agencies were undertaken. This is animportant step towards strengthen statehood. The legal basis of lawenforcement bodies has been enhanced and their functions clearly defined.Duplication of their activities has been excluded, and the criminal policyhumanized.Total attestation of all law enforcement personnel has been undertaken.12.5 thousand out of 100 thousand people has been unable to pass thetest and were dismissed.(2)We will further continue this work.I task my Administration jointly with the Security Council and theGovernment: · To prepare an action plan to increase the pay and retirement benefits of law enforcement employees. I task them to increase additional payments for special ranks up to one-month salary according to their military ranks.
· To elaborate the personnel policy concept of the law enforcement bodies; · To create a permanent personnel policy body for the law enforcement authorities based on the Supreme attestation commission; · Create Presidential reserve of leaders of the law enforcement bodies and special agencies.(3)I task my Administration, Security Council jointly with the Government toestablish a cross-department task group by the end of 2nd quarter of 2013to elaborate on the draft Program of further modernization of lawenforcement system.(4)The crucial issue of legal policy is to ensure that citizens use their rightsfor judicial protection, which is guaranteed by the Constitution.For that we need to simplify the process of finding justice, by eliminatingunnecessary bureaucracy. With active introduction of new informationtechnologies this will not be hard to achieve.At the same time, in order to ease the burden on courts we need to furtherdevelop institutions of outside the court dispute settlement. We need toinstall the mechanism that would allow settling small disputes outside thecourts.
