An OSCE delegation arrived in Kyrgyzstan to assess the reform of the internal affairs bodies of the country, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic reported.

The mission will study the work of the Central Office and the main services, the Rapid Response Centers, and the operational department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic. In addition, there will be a meeting with the Public Council of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic and visits to educational institutions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

The guests were shown the modernized Press Service Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for work with the media and the public, the international cooperation hall for meetings with official delegations and online conferences.

Particular attention was paid to the Center for Operational Control and Coordination, through which intelligent cameras monitor the situation online in crowded places in all regions and cities of the country, the report said.

During the meeting, Minister of Internal Affairs Ulan Niyazbekov noted that in a rapidly changing world, an urgent task for the police is to adapt to modern realities, based on the principled position to continue the reform processes on the principle “The police are out of politics, the police are for the people” by transforming all police activities on the basis of humanization, mutual trust and partnership with the public.

He also noted that in comparison with the same period in 2021, it was possible to reduce crime by 46%. Over the past 10 years, the crime rate has not decreased to today’s figures.

“The assessment of the situation showed that thanks to 136 video cameras and the possibilities of digital technologies in places with a difficult crime situation, it was possible to achieve a 25% improvement in crime detection.

If earlier grave and especially grave crimes were a systemic phenomenon, now their number has sharply decreased by 40%, and in general the detection rate has increased by 8%.

Thus, we managed to reduce the level of crime in public places by 21% due to the transition to rapid receipt of information and the adoption of prompt measures by monitoring the situation in real time using video cameras integrated into the Operations Control Center, also by introducing modern technologies,” the minister emphasized.
