MOSCOW, May 18 (Itar-Tass) — In St. Petersburg 55 policemen have been brought to disciplinary account after the inspections conducted by prosecutors.
St. Petersburg prosecutors inspected cells for administrative offenders at district police stations and metro police offices and checked the compliance with the registration discipline, a source at the Russian Prosecutor-General's Office reported on Friday.
Officials at district police stations and metro police did not register all the received reports about incidents. Some of the registered reports were not correct. There were violations of law-set time when decisions were taken not to initiate legal proceedings, the source said.
The prosecutors also found some reports about detained people not full or untrue. Some information about personal things seized from detained persons was not registered. The procedures to keep seized things were violated, and other violations were detected.
Besides, police officer Vera Bobrikova and assistant duty officer Valery Petrov were found in a drunken state in a metro duty police office. They had their service guns with them.
In connection with the cases, 55 police officials, including 17 senior officials of various levels, were brought to disciplinary account. Two metro police officers are dismissed.
The St. Petersburg prosecutor's office recommended to work out regulations for duty officers of district police stations, install web cameras inside all the stations, organize training of policemen and tighten responsibility of senior officials for violations committed by their subordinates.
