Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced the adoption of staffing decisions in the structure of the National Police as a result of their activities in the Q1 2017. This was announced by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman at the enlarged meeting of the Board of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine while commenting on the outcomes of work of the National Police in the first quarter of 2017.
"I think that we need to introduce personnel changes on the results of the first half-year. If a person performs his duties in a duly way on the ground then you should ask questions what else such employees need. We’ve raised salaries as well as funding for logistics support – now you have full and overwhelming assistance of the Government. But we want citizens to feel safe in their homes and on the roads. It is just you who can achieve that at the local level”, urged the Prime Minister addressing to the heads of regional departments.
"I would like to see ranking of the regions on outcomes of first half-year,” noted Volodymyr Groysman, adding that the Government would consider the possibility to replace those heads of the departments in three regions which are lagging behind. “The only exception should be made, and we are well aware of the complexity of the situation in the area of anti-terror operation: there is a different structure there, more serious challenges, we understand it," emphasized the Prime Minister. He also proposed to add detection of crimes against women to the key statistics designed to assess the work of law enforcement agencies.
He stressed that people's safety depends on the proper organization of work in each particular department. In this context, Volodymyr Groysman urged the leaders of the National Police to perform the duties conscientiously, while in turn the Government will help those officials who are committed to do their job instead of explaining why statistics demonstrates poor performance.
