MOSCOW, October 16 (Itar-Tass) —— About 11,000 policemen, who failed to pass reclassification “without negative reasons behind it,” need employment, Russian Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev said on Sunday.
“About 37,000 people asked for employment in the police, 26,500 people were employed and another 11,000 need employment,” the minister said at a meeting with the cadets, who administered the oath at the Moscow University of the Russian Interior Ministry on Sunday.
Nurgaliyev attended a swearing-in ceremony of about 500 first-year cadets.
“The administration of the oath is one of important stages in the military service. Probably right during the administration of the oath the cadets realize for the first time that they selected a quite difficult, but very interesting and respected profession. The policemen not just work, they serve in the police to the law and their nation,” the minister pointed out.
The interior minister added that future policemen are facing one of their main tasks to regain trust in the police. “You should always be ready to come for help to people. There is no place for hardheartedness, impartiality and formalism in our work. You should always remember that any address from people should be given an urgent response and you should take all the effort to solve the problem, even if you find it minor at first sight,” the minister underlined.
