According to Monastyrsky, increasing public confidence in law enforcement officers, creating a safe environment, improving technical support, digitalization and development of services and involving the Interior Ministry in anti-corruption reform are key areas for further development of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
The head of the law enforcement agency Denys Monastyrsky spoke about the directions during a meeting with the ambassadors of the G7 countries.
“The Interior Ministry will focus its efforts on five areas of work. As for increasing public confidence, we will focus on the following projects – police community support officer, body cameras for all patrol police officers, human rights monitoring “Custody Records”, safe childhood and combating domestic violence” – said Denys Monastyrsky.
He explained that the direction of creating a safe environment concerns road safety, the operation of “Phantom” vehicles, the Aeromedical Space System, the creation of a European fire safety hub and the work of voluntary fire brigades. The Ministry of Internal Affairs is also focusing a lot of attention on updating the material and technical base.
“For the next few years, we have an ambitious goal – to significantly improve and update the provision of our divisions. In 2021-2023, an intelligent border with Russia, Belarus and Moldova should be fully equipped. Reforms and improvements are required by the Sea Guard. Now the technical observation posts on the coast of the Azov and Black Seas are being modernized. The procurement procedure for 2 sets of stationary radar systems for surface lighting has begun” – said the head of the law enforcement agency.
According to Monastyrsky, the Ministry of Internal Affairs has a steady tendency to simplify the procedures for the provision of services by service centers. The next step is to further minimize the human factor in decision-making and maximize digitalization of services.
The Minister of Internal Affairs noted that one of the key principles of a new team is to eradicate corruption in the ministry’s system.
