The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine together with the line Committee of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine will shortly determine the priority laws designed to support the National police, and suggest them to Parliament for approval in a thematic day. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman at the meeting of the board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine on Thursday.
"We will shortly, in synergy with the Minister [of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov], hold a closed meeting with the Committee [of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine] in order to determine which legislative initiatives are of top priority, so that to devote one day in the Parliament and to support the National police," said Volodymyr Groysman.
He noted that it is crucial to analyse and decide necessary amount of funding to provide efficient operation of the National police. This question will be the focus of attention of the Government, promised the PM.
In this regard, the Prime Minister offered to develop a 2-3 year program to support and modernize the law enforcement system.
"First, the law and coordination of laws, second - financial assistance, rational and efficient, and we guarantee it to you, and third position is the system of work. It depends on you - the organization of work in each area and solving each particular issue", he said.
The Prime Minister noted that another such meeting would be summoned in December with representatives of regional law enforcement departments and in January – on the outcomes of the year, adding he’d like to hear reports in the plane of a specific region and in the context of each particular crime, to see the responsibility and efficient activity of each region.
Volodymyr Groysman noted that soon there would be solved an issue of dismissal from office of heads of the National police in different regions, those who had failed to demonstrate efficiency in combating crime.
