KIEV, August 23 /TASS/. Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on Saturday that a new patrol police would start patrolling the streets of Lvov, western Ukraine, and Odessa, southern Ukraine, by August 25.
"We are launching the first police patrols in Lvov tomorrow. We will present the new police in Odessa on August 25," Avakov wrote on his page in Facebook.
According to Avakov, about 800 patrol policemen will work in Odessa. "A native of Odessa will head the new police patrol force," he added.
Eka Zguladze, Ukraine’s deputy interior minister, said on June 6 that the State Traffic Inspectorate will be liquidated in Kiev and its powers will be transferred to the patrol police. The new police service is to appear in all Ukrainian cities with a population of one million people before the end of 2015. Mikhail Saakashvili, the head of the Odessa region, has promised that the United States will finance the training of a new patrol police force and an anti-corruption campaign in the Odessa police.
