President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev took part in an extended meeting of the board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, reports the press service of Akorda.

Head of the Presidential Administration B. Sagintayev, Assistant to the President - Secretary of the Security Council K. Kassymov, First Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Finance A. Smailov, senior officials of the Presidential Administration and the Ministry of the Interior also participated in the board meeting.

In his speech, the Head of State stressed that the First President of Kazakhstan - Elbasy before the Ministry of Internal Affairs was tasked with the formation of zero tolerance for offenses.

- The work of the police is under the scrutiny of the whole society. Your service is in direct contact with the interests of citizens of the country and its security. Therefore, the work of the Ministry of Internal Affairs should be organized clearly, systematically. The police should be more open. This requires a dialogue with society. To this end, we will continue the reform of the law enforcement system initiated by Elbasy. Its key task is to rigorously ensure the protection of the rights of Kazakhstanis, ”said Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.

Noting the stability of the criminal situation in the country, the President of Kazakhstan pointed to areas that require strengthening the work of the internal affairs bodies. Among them: the lack of effective police interaction with society, insufficient work to prevent theft of livestock, mobile phones and car parts, weak opposition to the drug business. In addition, the Head of State focused on the need to reduce road deaths, strengthen the work on the prevention of offenses on the ground and protect our citizens from the effects of natural disasters and emergencies.

- The main requirement for the police is effective work, and the key criterion for evaluating the effectiveness is public confidence. People complain that police often behave rudely or incompetently. In some cases, they themselves break the law and the rules, especially on the roads. Within the framework of the ongoing reform, the Ministry of Internal Affairs needs to provide for a set of systemic measures to preserve experienced and honest professionals, as well as a rigorous selection of young competent employees with a focus on sustained anti-corruption immunity, the Head of State instructed.

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev also approved the measures taken for the specialization of individual police units at work with foreign tourists, stressing that ensuring their safety is an essential component of a favorable investment climate.

At the same time, the President of Kazakhstan thanked the ordinary police officers, who, risking their lives, come to the aid of people, and assured that the state will provide serious support to the employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and their families.

Having heard the reporting information of the Minister of Internal Affairs E. Turgumbayev, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev instructed the Ministry of Internal Affairs to build up systematic work on the fulfillment of the tasks set, to actively use the possibilities of the mass media and social networks, and to provide the Government with the necessary resources.

In conclusion, the Head of State noted that the execution of data orders at the board will be under the constant control of the Presidential Administration and the Secretary of the Security Council.
